VOTE VOTE VOTE!
Don't forget to vote today!! I don't care how you vote, just vote! Be an informed voter.. and that means on ALL the issues in your area. We all have our big "hot button" issues that we love to get behind and we all get energized for the presidential race, but honestly we should be most concerned with our school boards, city council people, sheriffs, judges, mayors, & governors.. THOSE are the people who's decisions will most directly affect our lives!! Every time the polling place is open we should be there, not just every 4 years. Think about it!!
And if while you are voting today, you witness voter suppression, intimidation or fraud.. do something! Call your secretary of state, call your local democrat/republican office, call a reporter! When someone is deliberately kept from voting, we all lose. If there is a problem with your registration, ask to cast a provisional ballot and then later you can straighten out things. Get your voice heard!
I am so genuinely nervous, excited and scared.. my ass will be parked in front of a TV tonight, beer in hand watching and waiting and with any luck celebrating!!
Now I'm off to vote!
