NOTE: THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL POST.

Just posting a reminder to do your civic duty tomorrow (if you haven't already) and vote! As we say in Chicago, "vote early, vote often" tongue.gif !

Just out of curiosity, where is your polling place?

Mine is the fire station that's attached to the Burbank (IL) City Hall. My parents' polling place in Orland Park is a similar setting, the garage of the Orland Township Highway Department.

When I lived in Chicago, it was the gym of the local public elementary school.

Thanks for the reminder Mike. Our voting place here in Arizona is at the local Mormon church.

Harlot;

When it comes to voting I think Australia has the right idea. It's the Law not a priviledge. Don't vote get fined. Any way correct me if I'm wrong but I think I heard on the news that candidates are allowed to campaign on Election Day. Not here. No campaigning, pubs closed, and no forecasting results until all the polling stations across the country are closed. It used to be allowed but they found that it was influencing the vote on the west coast.

I agree with making voting mandatory.

Anyway, I voted at 7 AM this morning and had to wait a couple minutes. Was glad to see all the voting machines full when I walked in and people still streaming in as I waited. Polls opened at 6:30 this morning and the polling place was the historic train depot in town. My civic duty ain't finished though, as I need to now make sure my mom goes and votes before I take her to an eye appointment later today.

I strongly disagree. While I can't imagine a situation where I, personally, would choose not to vote but it should be an option. If people don't want to vote, for whatever reason, then they should have the freedom to do so.

Look what the Writer's Almanac has posted as its poem of the day:

Success is counted sweetest
By those who ne'er succeed.
To comprehend a nectar
Requires sorest need.

Not one of all the purple Host
Who took the Flag today
Can tell the definition
So clear of Victory

As he defeated — dying —
On whose forbidden ear
The distant strains of triumph
Burst agonized and clear!

"Success is counted sweetest" by Emily Dickinson.


They were out there waiting at 6AM -- a sweet mild morning, not a hard morning wait -- I think I'm in one of the most intense places in the country watching this today, right here at City College of New York in the guts of Harlem.

Still too cautious to call it -- let it come down without any eruptions out of control, no matter which way it goes.

Carmac, Voting is a freedom, one of the freedoms that out Fore Fathers fought for called freedom of choise and alot of people are choising this year. I vote because I want my vote to be heard,to be counted this is the way my voice is heard.

Campaining on this day ,I think they get ready for one of them is going to have a Big Party afterwards. We don't get mail on this days so I won't get any bills ,stores are open, no we don't shut everything down life goes on.

Some states you can vote early not Mich we have to vote on that day. They have absentee voting so to say if I was out of the state where you live , out of the country or couldn't get around to vote as it was for my parents you mail it in,as in my case I would pick my parents voting cards up and take them to our city office. One of the guys that I work with said he had some people come to his home and ask him if he was going to vote and if he would like a ride,he told them that yes he was voting but didn't need a ride he was going to vote when he gets out of work ( which is when a lot of us did)at 7:00am. Our polls open at 7:00am and close at 8:00pm.

Harlot;

The Aussies passed the voting law because it seems like us Canucks they don't take there politics to serous. Also from what I was led to believe that they were getting Governments elected on very low percentages (lower than ours). . This last election here was the lowest turnout in History 37%. so the voting law cropped up again. The law might be able to make you vote but it can't tell you for who or stop you from spoiling the ballot.

Camac.

I second that idea. I would hope there are no harsh words or trouble!!
