Go get a doughnut from Krispy Kreme (a super nifty patriotic doughnut!) then stop by Ben and Jerry's on the way home.

I've never understood this heavy handed nature towards rights. Living in a free country means you're, uh, free to not exercise your power to vote right? Creating an obligation, either by force or guilt, takes away the whole point of calling it a free country. Besides if all the candidates are morally repugnant to me why should I be forced to vote for one of them. By voting I am sanctioning their actions. Fortunately in my case there are a number of ballot Propositions that I want to either vote for or against here in AZ.
Because freedom comes at a cost, and so does that vote.  Heavy handed would be dragging people out of their homes to vote.  I respect people's right to sit on their ass and do nothing, but I don't want to hear their mouth when things don't go their way.  If all of the candidates are repugnant, go vote for the initiatives and propositions in your state.  Either way, this is your chance to have a voice - whether you waste it or not is entirely up to you.

Took me all of 15 minutes to decide the fate of our nation. Next task: cleaning my garage!

Done. No line, no fuss, took about 10 minutes.

Ditto. Went on my lunch break and did the deed in less than 5 minutes. All my worrying was for naught.

Waited in the wrong precint line for an hour (partially because of the cute blonde I was talking to), got done in 10 minutes once she was split out to her alphabetic line and I asked about the precinct.  No stickers in evidence.

I'm just asking everyone to use the right that veterans like myself and USMC Kato fight for - the right to vote. 

And those of us still serving...  slywink

Damn right.  Didn't mean to leave any still serving out of that loop!

I was blown away at how much of the ballot was devoted to which judges will potentially be replaced here in AZ.  It was the better part of the entire back of the ballot!  I walked in, showed my license, and then voted.  All in all, about 10 minutes.  Pretty smooth.

yeah, most of the ballot had stuff on it I had no idea about.  the touch screen said there was 11 pages, and out of those 11 pages  I only knew 3 items that I voted on.  I had to take a moment to look for McCains name on it to make sure nothing was wrong.  Nader was listed first, then Obama, then about 4 other people, then McCain.

As promised, this thread is now relegated to the R&P forum.  Thanks for letting me get the word out - folks voted in record numbers and that means a lot to me.

I'm an Arizona resident that voted absentee.  That was a lot of line-connecting scribbling I had to do on the back of that ballot!  smile
