OK. Things at work have finally calmed down enough that I have some time to blog again. So: MIDTERM ELECTIONS!!!!
Have you registered to vote? No? Why not? To find out if you’re registered, visit canivote.org. If you haven’t, google “how to vote in (your state)” and I guarantee you will figure it out. Also, most US post offices have voter registration forms, if you want to go the snail-mail way.
This election kind of matters and kind of doesn’t. Why? I’m so glad you asked! The GOP is trying to gain control of the Senate. Then they’d have control of the House AND the Senate. Which would be bad, but not the end of the world, because Obama would still have veto power. But it’d be better if it didn’t happen.
But you should vote. I know, I know, the system is broken, the two-party thing has made a mockery of Democracy, etc. But you aren’t going to change the system by not participating at all. By all means, write your local elections board and let them know you want to change how voting works. But also, vote.
