Don't Forget To Vote! by PixelKitties Don't Forget To Vote! by PixelKitties
Thanks to everyone who commented and voted! And congratulations to President Barack Obama!


Today is the day when citizens across the United States come together and take part in the representative democratic process. Say what you will about voter enthusiasm this year, about the ongoing hitches in the actual process of voting or even the candidates themselves. Voting, and actively supporting the political process is the key to democracy working. Don't buy into cynicism or the increasing tendency of officials to make voting harder rather than easier. Don't forget that voting is not only a right, it's an obligation. Without your vote, without your voice democracy cannot work.

Please take the time to cast your vote, no matter which candidate or party, let your voice be heard. And if you're determined to vote, if you're legally permitted to vote, don't accept NO as an answer from anyone- from poll worker to state official. If you're turned away at the polls, keep in mind there are actions you can take. Check out these websites for information on what to do if you feel that you have been disfranchised in your effort to legally vote.

866 Our Vote- [link] You can also call 1-866-OUR-VOTE to get instant assistance.

US Department of Justice Civil Rights Division- [link] Complaints related to voter intimidation or suppression can be addressed at 1-800-253-3931 toll free or 202-307-2767

The League of Women Voters- [link]

Finally, know your rights. You DO NOT necessarily need a photo ID on hand to vote. Many times you simply require your voter registration, utility bill, or other basic identification. Be informed and check out this interactive map to find out more about ID requirements in your state- [link]

And if you want a free sticker- and seriously, who doesn't want a free sticker?- submit a picture of yourself and at least one friend at a polling place or with your ballots and get a free sticker sent straight to your front door! Come on, FREE STICKER! [link]

Good luck tomorrow, and thanks in advance for doing your part to be a part of this great democracy. And if you're still on the fence about whether or not to vote- remember the best reason of all: If you don't vote, you aren't allowed to complain for the next four years. =)

I voted. I always recall those who died for my right to vote, and all those in the Arab Spring uprisings who died, or could have died, to realize that right for their nations as well. To those still fighting the good fight ... Good Luck, and fight honourably, not like dictators do. To those who have won the right recently ... Chose wisely! Do not squander your gains by returning to despotism, corruption, or discrimination! To those citizens of nations with a long history of democracy, exercise your rights (unless incarcerated, in which case you have very few, or an ex-felon, in which case you are also barred from voting, despite having served your time ... This applies in America, at least), least they be lost! Vote, speak your mind, attend the religious services of your choice (or none at all, if you prefer). Liberty or Death! I would truly prefer to die than live under tyranny!
