Please vote

Just do it. I don't care (well, I DO care, but that's another story) who you vote for, but please do vote. It's a privilege, but it's a responsibility. If we don't run this country, no one else will. WE are the nation.

It's not right that the entire country does what a third of the people want it to do. That's how many usually vote; hopefully this year there is enough interest that we will all let our opinions be known. 


  1. I think it's deplorable that we treat our privilege to vote in such a cavalier way. Lots of other countries' citizens, Iraqis most recently, hold their hard-won right to vote in such high regard that they risk their lives in order to do so. Yet many civic groups here in America are hoping for a 50% turnout? How sad is that...

    Yes, please go vote on Tuesday. If you need a ride to your polling place, please ask someone! This is your chance to make your voice heard in Washington, your State Capitol, and your local city hall.

  2. Yes, please ask someone if you need a ride! Thanks, Stacie.

  3. There was a high turn out in my town! I was thrilled. And the same 3 ladies, combined age of about 300, manned the polls. I'm thinking of trying to get some of us younger folks there to help them next time. When those three ladies go, we have no one in town with experience actually making the elections happen in a nice orderly fashion.

  4. Cool on the high turn out! It seems like the older folks were manning the polls here, too. Don't they get paid to do it?
