Argggh! Thankfully the election is tomorrow…I cannot stand any more of these advertisements. What’s worse is the phone calls with a taped statement from the candidate. If I stayed on the line long enough to find out who the candidates were, I would not be voting for them!
My goal for the day is to read through my voters pamphlet and select my votes so I’ll be ready when I go to the polls tomorrow. Of course, I won’t share my political leaning (though those that know me well, in person, are aware) because it’s one of the things I decided early on not to cover on my blog (politics and religion can be so divisive…it’s not worth it).
I tend to have a need to be heard (in general…people are free to discount my opinion but only after they have heard me out please) and with regard to political process, voting is the way to be heard unless I want to protest something (I don’t). So I feel pretty strongly about voting.
Trivia: there are 2 Microsofties that I know of on the ballot (my guess is that they left MS to pursue the campaign trail). I’m not endorsing anyone so I won’t link to anything here but I find that interesting.
