Amazing run-up to election day

I have to say that so far the 2008 Presidential Election has seen the most activity running up to election day that I can remember. I have received emails urging me to vote from Lance Armstrong, Trent Reznor, & Babies R Us just to name a few of the ones that stood out. I have received a metric ton from Al Gore, PAforChange, Bill Clinton, Joe Biden, Barack Obama, blah blah blah. Not to mention the overwhelming number of phone calls I have received from various celebrities, officials and campaign lackeys all trying to get me to vote.

This is change I can believe in. It's encouraging to see so many individuals companies and organizations getting behind advocating people to get off their couches, out of the office, and off their arse to get out and make a difference and cast a vote. Along with countless others I firmly believe that election day should be a national holiday, work is canceled and municipalities and organizations organize voting parties to help people get more caught up in it. It's far too easy to get stuck into the mindset that it doesn't matter, that the rich white oligarchs in Washington couldn't give two squirts about the people who pay to keep them in office.

I'm casting my vote tomorrow, and so should you. Don't vote; don't b!tch!

If you don't know where to go to vote; find your election hall with Google.
