Vote 2018

Nobody will ever deprive the American people of the right to vote except the American people themselves and the only way the could do this is by not voting. — Franklin D. Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States 
There are two kinds of people in the world: those who vote and those who don't.
It's your right.
It's your responsibility.
Not voting is not a form a protest, it's abdication.
Not registered? You can register to vote on Election Day (November 6, 2018) in:

  • California
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • DC
  • Hawaii
  • Idaho
  • Illinois
  • Iowa
  • Maine
  • Minnesota
  • Montana
  • Now Hampshire
  • Utah
  • Vermont
  • Wisconsin
  • Wyoming

Don't know where your polling place is? Find it here.
Don't know how to cast your vote? Take a minute, get a sample ballot from your area here, and figure it out.
Don't know why you should vote? Here are some of my reasons:

  • Vote because you are a citizen and it's your privilege and responsibility.
  • Vote so you have a say in how things run and who we will be as a country.
  • Vote so you can complain. That's right, put up or shut up.
  • Vote because when you don't, someone else gets to tell you how things will run.
  • Vote because "Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried…." So said Winston Churchill, who was paraphrasing some unknown pundit. 
  • Vote to keep this crazy, mixed up, flawed, fantastic experiment of a country from losing the bet that it wouldn't work.
And if those reasons don't do it for you:

Vote because I said so. 

Please. I'm asking you nicely.
