get out ... no vote

as i sat down at the computer tonight with every intention of mapping out who i need to vote for tomorrow it suddenly struck me … i’m not registered in georgia. crap.

no worries absentee vote in florida via internet. nope. double crap.

so here we are. midterm elections. even fewer people go to the polls than for a presidential election. but by all accounts, this vote is pivotal to getting some of the republicans out of office. unfortunately, i’ll be one of the bystanders.

so if you happen to be a liberal-minded non-voter in florida or georgia… please go to the polls. at worst, consider it as a way to get out of work for an hour or so.

for a little guidance try:
equality florida
worried the new machines are bunk? mother jones has some ideas: what to take to the polls: id, video camera, audio tape
see where your congressperson stands on issues with hrc’s congressional scorecard
want to make votes that will help protect reproductive rights? check out this guide.
or check emily’s list for strong women candidates.

are you voting tomorrow?

I did the same thing you did, only I realized I hadn't changed my address to this county. So I drove Chris over and she voted. I'm all registered now. :(
Great links!
