It is very important to vote!! We still have liberties in this country that are only dreamed of in other places. It is a fool thing not to exercise them even if you wind up writing-in Bill the cat for president. Remember, it was mentioned on another thread that this is one reason why W. wound up winning in 2004, because so many registered voters who hated Bush more than Kerry decided not to vote.

So go out there and vote for whomever you hate less!

Yeah, they are getting annoying. I can't even watch the end of my Panthers win over New Orleans ( Yipee!) without enjoying Obama attacking McCain.

Maybe that would be a fitting way to say goodbye to Opus - writing in Bill the Cat.

This is my first chance to vote in an election and while I have already sent in my absentee ballot it was really hard for me to make a decision. I watched the debates and I listened to patitioners on both sides, but I still basically went with a gut decision and not so much of an informed one. I know I will have more elections to choose from, but for my first one, this is kinda the fail. But yes, totally ready for it all to be over.

The operative word is "decision." Many people across the globe do not get the chance to make one. However we base our choices we must be grateful that we are able to make them. Kudos to your early vote. When I was in college, so many people never bothered to send in absentee ballots. It was as though they were just content to be within their own microcosm known as "school."

The was the politicians run their campaigns, it's no wonder so many people don't vote, and even though I'm not of age, I'm already disgusted in some ways by politics. Every hour of every day we're reminded that it's election year, and the ads are a big part of it. The funny thing is they can't seem to say much good about themselves, only bad things about an opponent. Guess it's just too hard to find good in the corruption that is Washington.

The amount of campaigning and registering going on in the Big Ten college scene right now is ridiculous. In fact the early voter turnout at my school was so intense a few people from my residency class waited for 3 hours just to vote. I was very happy to be able to just mail and go.
