This bitch got my absentee vote on last week!
I’m scheduled to work polls in the county on Election Day, so my city-based self needed to take care of my patriotic duty early!
Longtime readers know that I adore voting but I’d never voted absentee before. I was a wee bit worried that it wouldn’t be the same…that it would lack the emotional rush I get when I vote on Election Day. But as I filled out my ballot the rush was there…the thrill of finally being able to make my choices official and doing so in a crowd of fellow voters…it was fantabulous!
But many of y’all will head to the polls Tuesday November 4th and this bitch wants to make a simple request of you.
***steps up onto soapbox***
With all the frenzified anticipation surrounding the presidential race it is easy to forget that there is a lot of other shit…a lot of very important other shit…on the ballot.
State Senate races, State Rep. races...here in Missouri we have the Governor’s race and the A.G. race, proposals and initiatives...and so forth and so on.
Those of us who have worked our asses off on state campaigns need voters to complete the ballot!
Mmmhmmm, y’all need to commit to finishing it…flip it over and work your way down to the bottom (blink) …COMPLETE IT, DAMN IT!
In the words of the SOS Band…baby we can do it!
Take the time.
Do it right.
