    VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE VOTE - NEXT TUESDAY!

    Well the last Voting reminder thread was locked because people couldn't refrain from mentioning specific candidates, which is against the rules. However, I feel it is important to have a reminder out there to exercise our civic duty, so I'll put Zeus' original post back here. Feel free to discus voting, just not who you're voting for.

    I don't give a shit who you vote for - I have my favorites, but that is not what this is about.


    Voter turnout in this country is fairly pathetic, which is rather sad as the right to vote is something that many many many men (and women) have fought and died to protect and preserve.
    In 2004, only 55.3% of the voting-age population in the USA voted in the Presidential election.

    If we then take out of the voting-age population and use only the voting ELIGIBLE population (no convicted felons, non-citizens, etc.) then the percentage rises to 60.1%, which is still (IMHO) sad.
    http://elections.gmu.edu/Turnout_2004G.html

    So - I encourage you to VOTE next Tuesday!
    And take the time during the next week to get familiar with the LOCAL issues (bonds, propositions, state representatives, etc.) that will be on the ballot so that when you DO go vote, you'll be informed.

    If you live in Lake County, IL, you can go to this site to look up what will be on your ballot next Tuesday. It's a good way to prepare for going into the booth.

    http://www.co.lake.il.us/cntyclK/elections/voterservices/elecinfo/voterinfo.asp

    I'm sure there are sites like this for you Minnesota residents, if anyone would care to post them?

    They should make voting easier, they could make it part of the everybody votes channel for the wii. ;D
    You don't have to wait until tuesday to vote, you can simply go to the court house anytime(atleast where I live) before and fill out a ballot, my parents voted this morning.
    Or you can get an absantee ballot by mail.

    This isn't meant as an attack.

    I think there's way, way, way more wrong with an unknowledgeable voter than a non-voter.

    atleast an unknowledgable voter has 50% chance of getting it right, a non-voter has zero.

    It does matter though.
    Not only in the big races, but there are also undoubtedly local measures and elections that will be on next Tuesday's ballot as well.
