Oh I don't vote. I figure whatever happens, happens.....I just don't believe in it.
Did anyone else hear that interview on NPR last week with the folks going door to door to get out the vote when they came upon this one? I think my jaw dropped when I heard this woman say she doesn't vote. To think she's so disconnected to not want to vote? And then I realized, there are a lot of people who think this way. Look at voter turnout.
Me? I don't get it. Of course I vote. And I'm so glad to live in Oregon where we vote by mail. You don't have to haul your ass to some elementary school basement where you are greeted by 80 year old volunteers wearing SUPPORT OUR TROOPS ribbons. We don't have to stand in some rinky dink booth with red white and blue drapes providing security while we line up some machine to hopefully punch holes in the right place. We have it easy. Make some drinks, gather up the massive amounts of campaign mailers we've received, and get to it. That's voting night at our household. Good times, good times.
Shout out to all the voters out there: if you voted, leave a comment. Feel free to delurk or just say you did it. Props to you: your voice is heard.
