If you’re in the United States, I’m sure you know today is election day. I personally believe that voting is one of the most important responsibilities we have as citizens of this country and everyone who is eligible to do so should; as they say “If you don’t vote, you can’t complain.” I have never missed an election (that’s every election, not just presidential) since I was old enough to vote and though I’ve only voted for a presidential winner once, I’m hoping that tonight I’ll make it 2 for 4. I’ve got two election themed links to share today, one informational and one fun.
First – If you’re not sure where your polling place is, Google has a pretty good lookup here. In addition to your polling place it brings up every canidate running on your ballet in every position in case you need to do a little last minute research before you get to the polls.
Second – A really great This American Life ran Sunday called Red State, Blue State about the rift that politics has created in people’s lives, both personally and for those involved in politics. I thought it was a pretty great listen.
Now get out there and vote!!
