Hey – you! Did you vote yet? Why not? When are you going to vote? Are you going to vote at all? You need to vote, for serious. Get off your lazy ass and go to the polls. If you are in Wisconsin you can register right there with a piece of mail or someone to vouch for you. YOU. HAVE. NO. EXCUSES. ANYMORE.
I went an voted at 6:45 this morning. Already there was a line out the door, some 70 people ahead of me. Lauren and I stood and waited until 7, when the line started moving quickly. Before you knew it, we were thru, our ballots cast for Barack Obama and Joe Biden. We stood and chatted with Lyn (my advisor) for a while; she shares our same polling place. We got back home by 7:30. And I felt proud to have cast my vote in such a historic race.
But what about you? I guarantee that this election will affect your life, so don’t pretend otherwise. And I guarantee you are smart enough to vote. You can and should vote. TODAY. THIS IS YOUR ONLY CHANCE TO VOTE IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OF 2008.
Early this afternoon, I started my own little Get Out The Vote (GOTV, to those of us in the know) campaign. I called everyone (nearly) in my phone book. I urge you to do the same. Call everyone. Get out the vote! VOTE OBAMA!!
