Vote, it Makes You Feel Big and Strong

20121103-150911.jpg Sometimes it's easy to forget that not too long ago in this country, over half its citizens (Blacks, Women) didn't have the right to vote. People fought so that you and I could have a say in the politics of this country. As they say "apathy is a weapon of mass destruction." So make sure to get out and vote November 6th or find a ballot drop box near you.

If you live in King County they just launched mobile web portal that shows where the locations of ballot drop boxes, an election countdown clock, and results - pretty neat!

This election cycle I volunteered at the phone banks, signed up to help fight against voter suppression, and donated money. It all felt really good. And today I dropped off my ballot! Go vote, it makes you feel big, strong, and powerful!
