Don't Forget...

I think it is a serious privilege and honor to cast our votes this fall. I just got back from an early voting polling place in my fair city of Chicago. I hope you American readers will all do the same, helping to determine the path you feel best for your own lives, our country, and this world. I'll be waiting with baited breath to see how this whirlwind of an election season turns out... my hopes are high.

We have early voting in NC and I plan to vote early.

I couldn't agree more! I'm hopeful as well but out here in California we also have Prop 8 which is causing me some stress. Keeping fingers crossed!

I wish I had tried to vote early last weekend, I can't get to the early voting places by 5 and I can't get to the suburbs during lunch easily. Guess I'll be in line at 6 am on Tuesday!

Your voting system is interesting. In Australia it is compulsory for everyone to vote, on the one day everyone goes to their nearest school hall, town hall, anywhere that has an election booth, show your ID and get your name marked off and then vote. I couldnt imagine living somewhere where voting is optional... how many people vote in the US? Do most people?

If we dont vote in Australia we are fined.

I hope the best person is voted in. The coverage of the US election is high here, and I know how I would vote for if I lived in the US.
Best of luck, Sam xoxoxoxoxox

Over 150,000 Chicagoans have voted early - who knows how many have sent in absentee ballots!? This election will go down in all sorts of books.

Good blog - rock that vote, whether it's early, absentee, or on Tuesday!
