Election Day

Sample BallotOne week from today is Election Day for all my readers in the United States. Those of you sharing North Carolina with me can already vote and I wouldn’t be surprised if many already have. If you haven’t voted yet, I urge you to do so, without regard for your political bent. As you may have guessed I am politically bent far to the left, so I believe the more people who vote the better. I also trust that my readers are sufficiently intelligent to figure out where and when they can vote early, should they choose, but I’ll be waiting until next Tuesday. For some reason I prefer to vote on the traditional day and, since I’ve taken the day off from my day job to help get out the vote, it won’t be any trouble for me to get to the polls.

I firmly believe our political situation will improve if more people vote so please join me in selecting the candidate that best represents your opinions.

On a relate note, earlier today I listened to the following BBC documentary entitled Politics at the Polling Station:

What are changes in voting laws doing to demoracy in the USA? Rajini Vaidyanathan travels to North Carolina to investigate voting rights in the United States
