You owe it to yourself to vote

One recent study indicates only 26 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds plan to vote in the midterm elections tomorrow.

Shame on the rest of them.

Shame on everyone who cares about bad government, who cares about what happens to our society, who cares about people with power who aren’t doing the right thing, who consciously cares about her own self-interest….and doesn’t plan to bother to vote tomorrow.

I’m not just saying “It’s your civic duty to vote.”

I’m saying that, if you care about that stuff, then refusing to vote isn’t a good strategy.

Dare to vote for candidates who are better than the ones who got elected last time.

  1. I voted in August to keep from being disenfranchised by those mean Republicans! Of course that was before ISIS and Ebola but I didn't need to give them any ID and they were nice enough to send me a ballot in Farsi! Made no difference to me as long as I keep my phone , disability and food stamps! Thanks for showing the way, I was so impressed with our current situations I started a petition to ban hatchets after the attack in NY. and placed an old Obama sign in my yard just to show unity! Can't wait for Elizabeth Warren!
