…Just maybe not POTUS. (Because, let’s face it, the electoral college is stupid and only three or four states really matter anyway.)
I do not get a vote in one of those states that “matter” this November.
Which started me wondering: Self, does it even matter if you vote (aside from complaining rights)? Going to the polls is awfully inconvenient because Work and Driving and Traffic…
Then I started looking into the special questions and state-wide referendums due to show up on ballots this November. And let me tell you, some of them are doozies.
A smattering of reasons to vote, even if you could care less about the Presidential election:
California: The Death Penalty
Colorado: Marijuana Legalization
Maryland: Same-sex Marriage
Minnesota: Same-sex Marriage
Montana: Proof of Citizenship
Washington: Same-sex Marriage
In other news, Michelle did well last night and I still want her arms.
