Although we have tried to generate information relevant to the topic of this blog, we realize that few people who read this blog are single issue voters. Most folks look at the candidates' positions on many issues that concern them. They also look at temperament, character, background, and even personality. So do your duty as a citizen: study up and then be sure to vote.
There are many other exciting races further down the ballot. Maybe next we will develop ten questions for candidates for school board although some should vary by location. Remember when local bodies rather than the federal government set educational policy. The banking industry is not the only thing that has been nationalized!
Your vote counts. In four different elections in my county in the last few election cycles, elections were decided by fewer than ten votes; once the margin was only one vote! The right to decide who represents us at the ballot box wasn't free. Many have fought, many have been injured and many have died to ensure that we keep our freedoms- including the right to vote. Don't take it for granted. Regardless of which party you support, and regardless of who you are going to vote for, and regardless of the reasons for your decisions, please VOTE.
The nonpartisan League of Women voters has developed some great tools to help voters. If you don't know where your voting place is, use this helpful link: http://www.lwv.org/VOTE411/widget/VOTE411_Poll_LWV_200x250.swf
