Vote early ... and often.

 

I started a thread yesterday reminding my fellow Americans to vote; there was no mention of party, no mention of names - and my thread was removed without any private messages to me.

 

I look at this thread not as a political thread per se, just a reminder to ... vote early and often. ;)

 

I voted using an absentee ballot (NY).

No guitarists were harmed during the making of this message.

 

In general, harmonic complexity is inversely proportional to the ratio between chording and non-chording instruments.

I removed the other thread because it began to turn nasty. If this one begins to turn nasty, I'll remove it as well.

 

Anyone who's been hanging out on this forum for any period of time knows how I feel about political and religious threads - and yet some people start them anyway. Every time anyone starts one, you take the risk that I'll remove it.

 

This subject is not open for debate.

It's a joke. I believe it was a slogan of the now deceased Mayor Daley of Chicago.

Yeah, but I can see that that *does* encourage a debate over whether you should vote, which could quickly become a political debate. I mean, it is stating a view on representative democracy, isn't it?

Did it. Always do, not every race, because here in TX there are dozens of judicial races and I don't vote for people when I don't know enough about them.

It's so frustrating that it's currently against the law to check for legal identification at the polling place.

In Ohio it's legal and in fact is a new law this year.

In Florida you are required to show valid ID before you can vote.

Here in South Carolina our Governor, Mark Sanford, was turned away from the polls because he did not have his voting card with him. He was in Charleston for late rallies and his card was at home in the capitol of Columbia. Good to see this thing being taken seriously by the poll workers (that's what the Governor said too).

 

Unlike Governor Sanford, I voted. :thu:

If you don't vote, then you don't have the right to bitch about politicians.

 

This is why I ALWAYS vote -- I LIKE to bitch about politicians!!! :)

My wife and I voted at 8am this morning, and I was voter number 110.

 

I really like how I feel during the voting process--even though I generally find politics very distasteful. I feel like I am an active participant, not a bystander.

 

BTW: Michigan does not require either ID or a voter registration card.
