Vote!!

I hope all of you guys out there have either mailed in your ballots early or are intending to vote on Tuesday.

I don't care who you vote for. I do care that you exercise your right to vote.

I hope this isn't too political..

Dear posters.

Any subsequent reply to this thread that has a partisan political comment or implication or even smells of that...



Feeling lucky?

I would only like to add that I mailed my request for voting by mail and I haven't gotten the vote thing yet. As I have never done this before, do you receive it on the 6th? Should I instead go to the polls and vote that way?

Should have early voted. There are only 8 days this election as opposed to 14 from last election. If you haven't got it by now, I'd be standing in line on the 6th casting your ballot.

Please, everyone who can vote, pleased do! It's your only way to make a real difference and change.

To anyone tempted to not vote on the grounds of "they're all the same" or "in my state my red (blue) vote won't count" Kirkus is right, vote anyway; any vote is better than none.

A couple of things, firstly I think US politics is missing something by not having the Official Monster Raving Loony Party present. Perhaps you Brits could convince Screaming Lord Sutch, 3rd Earl of Harrow to start a branch over here.


And secondly...

It's true.
I have voted once in the last 20 years, and on each occasion I didn't vote I was sent a please explain to fill out.
I have had enormous fun filling these forms out, on one occasion for my excuse I wrote: -
"My wife and I are trying to start a family, and she was ovulating."
No fine, valid excuse.

I'm ready to vote!

So, uh, what are we voting for?
