Get Off Your Ass And Vote!
You can even vote by mail if you send it in on time. I prefer going to the polls. There is something about standing in the voting booth next to my neighbors and punching out my choices that makes me feel very American in a positive way.
Because this is not a presidential election year, they expect lower turnouts at the polls. Guess some folks figure if they aren't casting their vote for the top job, it doesn't matter.
Well, it does!
Here in California we have the Governor's seat up for grabs, along with an important US Senatorial seat. There are also many important measures on the ballot. I won't go into details about which candidates or measures I support, but you can bet that tonight, when I get home from work, I'll be going over my sample ballot one last time to make sure I'm confident about my choices.
Voting is not just our right, it's our privilege and duty.
So tomorrow, get off your ass and go do it!
