The Right to Vote: Use It!

Today is the most important day for democracy in the USA. I hope that this year's election sets voter turn-out records, because if there was ever a time when it matters to vote, this is it.

It is troubling to read of technicial glitches in the election system. I would think that these problems would not exist in a nation so great and resourceful as the USA. It is troubling to see that there are those in this country who seek the disfranchisement, and disenfranchisement of certain populations of Americans.

This will be a telling day for the future of America.

Here's a link to a NYT article about the elections, and election problems: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/07/washington/07cnd-day.html

Have a good day, and for goodness sake, get out there and vote!
