For me, this is the most important election of my life. Therefore, this is probably one of the most important posts I've ever made on this site. And hey, it's not even Chuck Palahniuk related.
Today is Election Day. This was the longest election campaign in our history, and its impact and consequences on the country can be huge. Simply put, it's a monumental occasion. So all of you need to go out and cast your ballot today. Go vote! I won't lie, I'm voting for Barack Obama. I've been a supporter of his since I first read about him over a year ago. I've even donated to his campaign. This isn't about Obama though. It's not about McCain. It's about you. So don't waste the opportunity this country has given you.
Here is a link with voting information.Here is an easy way to find your closest polling station.
(it links to Barack's page, but that's only because they made it so easy to figure out)
Finally, I want to include a video that you should all watch. Yes, it's lame, but it's about the big concern that there may be a lot of voter suppression going on today. This video will warn you of the underhanded tactics some political operatives may use to try and steal the election. It gives tips on how you can avoid problems at the polls.
That's it! If you'd like, you can share you experiences at the booths in this thread. I'd love to hear people's recollections of the day.
