I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but this Friday (Oct 8th) Monday (Oct 4th) is the last day you can register to vote for the election in PA. Rules are also exceptionally tighter this year as things such as ID and proof of address may be required at the polls in November.
The good news is that the funding for those newfangled electronic voting machines (that neither side seems to trust) fell through here and I’ll have one of those old, reliable levers to yank.
I saw a comment recently where one voter is not even going to bother because they’re in a solid Red state. There may be someone out there that feels the same way because they’re in a solid Blue state.
To them I say, well that’s you’re choice, of course, but bear this in mind: There is a lot more on that ballot than just who’s running for President… one way or another your vote DEFINITELY counts there. Your local government will affect your life FAR MORE than who ends up in the White House.
Me? I got a senator to vote out (yes for once I’m listening to Ann Coulter). Personally, I can’t get past him discouraging Clinton against trying to kill Osama bin Laden with missles back in 1998, claiming it was “merely a distraction FROM the Monica scandal”.
And no, it’s not Rick Santorum… but trust me, when his turn comes, you can count on me to do the right thing. :0)
