This is one of the most important elections of our time and I encourage everyone to get out there and vote. My views are pretty clear on this blog but whatever your views are, you should vote. Register now if you’re not registered. Make sure your address is updated with your state and you know your polling place. You’ve probably noticed the “Rock the Vote” link on the left. This convenient form allows you to register to vote in your state – it’s powered by Rockthevote.org so absolutely no data gets passed through my website (so don’t worry about that).
The deadline for voter registration in many states is fast approaching. Go to maps.google.com/vote to check the deadline in your state, and register!
I voted in my first Presidential election 4 years ago because I felt very strongly that George W. Bush was so wrong for this country and I didn’t want to see him in office for another 4 years. I would’ve voted for Gore in 2000 but I wasn’t old enough to vote then. Anyway, I remember following the results all night long on TV and being utterly disappointed and sad when he won the election. Because I knew he was going to mess this country up for another 4 years.
