Vote!

What are you doing here? This is no time for leisure reading.

Go vote. Go get your friends to vote. Call people and remind them to vote.

My two cents – VOTE OBAMA!

I received this email from Moveon.org and I’m sharing it here:

Election 2008 Voting Information

Today, November 4th, is Election Day! Remember to vote—not just for Barack Obama, but for Congressional, state, and local candidates as well.

IMPORTANT NOTE: MoveOn members overwhelmingly oppose California’s Proposition 8 (a ban on same-sex marriage). Please vote NO on Prop 8.

Where and when do I vote?

Find your polling place, voting times, and other important information by checking out these sites and the hotline below. These resources are good, but not perfect. To be doubly sure, you can also contact your local elections office.

* Obama’s VoteForChange site: voteforchange.com
* League of Women Voters’ site: vote411.org/pollfinder.php
* Obama’s voter hotline: 877-US4-OBAMA (877-874-6226)

What should I do before I go?

* After you’ve entered your address on either Vote For Change or Vote411, read the voting instructions and special rules for your state.
* Voting ID laws vary from state to state, but if you have ID, bring it.
* Check out all the voting myths and misinformation to look out for: http://truth.voteforchange.com/

What if something goes wrong?

* Not on the voter list? Make sure you’re at the right polling place, then demand a provisional ballot.
* If you’re voting on an electronic machine with a paper record, verify that the record is accurate.
* Need legal help? Call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
* If you encounter a problem, try to videotape the situation and submit it to VideoTheVote.org

Want to do more?

* Text all of your friends: “Vote Obama today! Pass it on!”
* Make calls from home for Obama.

Now, everybody go vote!!!
