I Hope You Will Vote

 Updated 3/2017 -- all links (except to my own posts) removed as many no longer active and it was easier than checking each one.

My husband and I are going to vote today. We plan to take advantage of the “early voting”. I find it much easier than trying to get out and vote on the first Tuesday of November. It is less crowded and I don’t have to worry about going to the “correct” location. You are allowed to go to any of the available locations in your county during the “early voting” period.
I will not tell you who to vote for, nor will I tell you whom I plan to vote for. I would like to encourage you to VOTE.
If you live in Arkansas and wish to vote early:
To check for a polling site in your area, visit the Secretary of State's website (click here) to contact your county clerk.

A person's vote is the strongest symbol that s/he lives in a democracy. It's criminal to not vote.
So good of you to remind people to vote, Ramona.
I know you'll exercise your franchise wisely :)

PS. I really like the embedded comment box that Blogger introduced recently. You're one of the early adopters. Learning from your more geeky friends :)
