Top 10 reasons to vote

  1. It's better than going to the dentist.
  2. You'll probably get a sticker.
  3. It doesn't hurt.
  4. If you don't like either candidate, you can vote against one of them.
  5. You can get a free cup of coffee.
  6. The major parties spent $1 billion collectively to get you there. That's $8 for every vote.
  7. They make food that's portable if there's a long wait.
  8. Trevor thinks its important.
  9. It would be gigantically anticlimactic not to.
  10. And, you know, because of this.

Going to vote as soon as the school takes off from our corner.
And although I have to drive 25 minutes to get it, I want to cross 4 cities to get to my closest Starbucks to get my cuppa coffee.
Make the effort - it's worth the time and energy. VOTE

I voted at 7 am this morning. I'm bummed because my polling place didn't have stickers, coffee, OR food. I feel totally ripped.

Oh wait, I voted for Obama... so as long as he wins (which I think he will) I guess I can forgive the lack of goodies.

fyi - you have to GO GET the free stuff (coffee, donuts, and ice cream)

geez...I hope some of you did better research on your candidates and initiatives

Geez, someone's a little grumpy today. I didn't know it was necessary to bite someone's head off for a slight misunderstanding. Obviously since she didn't pay attention to the freebies she must FAIL at voting. *rolls eyes*

Anyways, WOO STICKER!!! Living in downtown LA, I was so warmed by the turnout and diversity of voters at the polling place at 7 AM in the morning.

I'm definitely getting that coffee after I finish writing this paper. I'm going to need it in order to stay up tonight and wait for the results!

Which candidate promised us all this free food anyway, as I want to make sure I voted for the right one...They ran out of stickers by the time I voted, but not near any Krispy Kreme, Starbux or Ben & Jerry...I think the nearest Krispy Kreme is in Scranton, 2 hrs away... :-(

-Free cup of coffee at Starbucks: That's pretty cool.
-"Living In America" by James Brown= GREAT SONG!=D Even if I'm not at all patriotic.

Take, care.

Plainsman: I live in Scranton and can confirm that there's a Krispy Kreme here. Interesting that we live so close.

gabrielina said...

I sent in my absentee ballot over a week ago! YAY! I was sad because I didn't get a sticker though. :D Since I live in the middle of nowhere, there are no Starbucks (yea weird), Krispy Kreme, or any of the others. Oh well.

I thought his name was Truett?

You always surprise me. I would have sworn you were a McCain person.

the plainsman said...

Did you save a copy of yesterday's edition of the newspaper you edit for Allison when she grows up? It might be cool for her to have for show and tell years from now, not to mention for her to show her kids when she is grown! (I still have the NY Times "Men Walk on Moon" and "Nixon Resigns" in the attic bureau.) LOL!

I never thought of voting *for* someone as voting *against* someone else. And yet, that's exactly what I did... go fig. :)
