Voting is so easy. Voting feels good, almost orgasmic even. Think about it: the act of Voting is like the concentrated release of all the beefs and gripes and hopes and ideals that have been pent over time. Voting is finally having our say. Even if the system is rigged, and all our votes go uncounted, at the very least Voting reinforces the illusion that we live in a free and democratic society.
Again, Voting is easy, especially nowadays. Even if you are forced to vote during rush hour and are stuck in a long line, with the tiny computers in our cellphones, you could get your banking done, set your DVR, and check Facebook, all while listening to some fresh tracks on your iPod. And Voting is pretty fun anyway: I love people watching and trying to guess who that asshole is voting for. And if you are like me, and have never been polled (especially since most of us youngerish people don’t even have hard land-lines) that makes our votes the monkeys-in-the-wrench, so to speak. There is nothing better than proving the polls and pundits wrong.
Polling places are well within a reasonable distance to you and your home. The internet makes them easy to find, and is a great resource for learning about your district and the candidates.
Voting is sexy. So come on! Get in the mix. Make your voice heard, because only once every year do we get the opportunity to pop off like our Forefathers intended.
So Party People, please VOTE.
