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.
