Go vote! Seriously.
If you’re in the United States, and you haven’t already, today is your day. Carry out your civic duty. Get one of those nifty stickers. Show it off to your friends, your family, your co-workers. And tell them to get up, get energized, and go vote too!
I just talked to the handyman who works for my landlords. As I do to everyone on voting day, I exhorted him to get to the polls. I’ve already been, he told me. I became a citizen eight years ago, and now I vote, first thing every morning, in every election. Because you can’t complain if you don’t vote.
Be like that guy.
If you don’t know your where your polling place is, you can find it here.
If you need to get informed on the candidates, or on the issues, you can do it here.
I’m not telling you who to vote for. I’ve already done enough of that. Today, I’m just telling you to go out and do it — to go vote.
