Are you an American citizen?
Are you registered to vote?
Have you voted yet?

(My county is all-mail-in, so my ballot is already in.)

If not, tomorrow is the big day. And my big request to you is:


(h/t Jeff Lieber)

It stands for Stay. The. Heck. In. Line.

(Okay, okay. Jeff used a much stronger word. I'm trying to be nice, here.)

I've been watching the news, with the huge, hours-eating, round-the-block lines of people waiting to vote, and Tuesday is likely to be worse. Turnout is predicted to be incredibly high. And if you haven't voted yet, those lines may be a bit of a deterrent.

Don't let the wait stop you from voting. Please, please, stay in line. Bring a snack. Bring a bottle of water. Bring a book. (Or three.) Turn in that ballot. Let your voice be heard. Whether your candidate wins or loses, every vote counts.

So STHIL. Your country will thank you for it. :)

I'll be there! I wish I would have voted earlier, but I didn't. Oh well. Tomorrow's the day...

Yay! Good for you. I sometimes wish that we still had polling places in our county. There's just something about handing in that ballot and getting the "I Voted" sticker.

On the other hand, it's nice to be able to research ballot measures on the computer while I'm voting. ;)
