Vote

Get out and vote today, if you haven't already.  I vote early and have for years--ever since they allowed it. It beats standing in line.  

I don't believe either of my grandmothers ever voted.  Neither of them ever drove a car, either.  I don't think the two are connected.  I don't know if they could meet today's identification requirements if they were still alive and wanted to vote.  

I registered right after I turned 18 and started voting at the first election that came along.  Then they came out with this vote by mail concept.  I guess there may be some risk to privacy and a few ballots may not get delivered properly--but it sure is damned convenient.  

The trend seems to be more toward discouraging voting these days.  If they wanted more people to vote, they should have a deal where, after voting, you get a coupon and you could take it to some place like Dairy Queen and get an ice cream cone.  Now that would be something.  Heck, I might even try and vote three or four times if I got ice cream. That would be something.
