Raise Your Voice

Happy Election Day!

You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world

Finally, it is Time. Hopefully a new day is dawning. A day when I can turn on my television and not see a political advertisement. A day when I can come home from work and not have messages on my answering machine from celebrities encouraging me to vote.

A day that, I fear, will live in infamy.

I was living in North Carolina for the 2000 election, working at Total Sports. I voted for Gore, dammit. I remember that I was working the night shift (6 p.m. to whenever) on Election Night, and it was quite the exciting time watching the returns come in on the networks.

Of course, that led to both confusion and abject depression. But still exciting!

You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We all want to change the world

I forgot my Who To Vote For cheat sheet at the office (I've got all the major players covered, but when it comes to referendums and amendments and school board openings, I can't keep it all straight), so I won't be able to vote before work this morning. Which means I'll be queueing up to vote after work.

I know my rights, though - if I'm in line before 7 p.m., you have to let me vote no matter how long it takes. So I will not be denied! Wraugh!

Anyway, I hope you all get out there and vote, no matter which candidate you support. As nasty as this election has become in some ways, I think it's wonderful that so many people plan to be involved in the process.

Don't you know it's gonna be alright...
