Please Vote!

This is just a friendly reminder to please vote today. Whatever your party affiliation, if you are a U.S. Citizen, please take the time to vote today. I believe it is our civic duty to vote. If you need help deciding on the issues, Mashable has links to 17 Web Resources to Help You Decide on Election Day.

If you want to know why you should vote, read up on how many people had to fight to get the right to vote for all citizens of the United States — whether it was propertyless white males in the 18th and 19th centuries, or women and African-Americans during the 19th and 20th centuries.

“Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.” — George Jean Nathan

(Of course, one may also reverse that argument somewhat — that good citizens who do vote elect bad officials!)

Still not motivated? I’ve included a School House Rock Rock the Vote video below to get you out.

Now, after that, how can you not vote today? I bet you’ll be singing that song all day now.

Please let me know what you think....
