if you're a US citizen, i implore you to VOTE in this upcoming presidential election. i don't care who you vote for (well, actually i do, but i won't get into that):), just VOTE!!!! it's so important!

I live in Oregon and have already voted!! :woohoo:
10-29-2004, 03:30 PM
I agree, go to the polls and make your vote count! (I won't get into it either, Heather LOL)

I live in one of the critical states, Ohio. You bet I will be voting on Tues! Ok, I'll be good, too, and not name my choice. But I will say I live in a politically divided house so I have to make sure I get to the polls to cancel out my hubby's vote! :)
As the old saying goes, VOTE EARLY, VOTE OFTEN! :biglaugh: (just a joke, please don't do it)
Seriously, you are right, Heather, it is so very important for each of us to vote!

I also have already voted --- and also won't say how. In Oregon we're 100% vote by mail, which I honestly don't like. There was something about going to the polls on election day to vote that was special to me. Now I know that I have voted, but in Oregon it can be weeks before we know the results.
I think educating ourselves on the candidates and issues and voting is a serious responsibility we all have and I urge each and every one of you to vote.
And if you have really good ESP --- well --- vote for my candidates! ;)

This will be my first year voting!!! I'm excited. I didn't vote when I turned 18 but I get to vote this year! Woo hoo! Chelsey :)

This is the first year I'm old enough, and you can bet I'll be voting!!! It probably won't matter since I'm in SC, but I can't whine for the next four years if the candidate I want loses unless I'm out there :D.

I haven't voted in several years but plan to this year. I have moved a couple of times since last voting and I don't know which location to go to vote. Someone told me I probably vote at the last place I went but I don't remember where that is (it has been a long time, hasn't it?). What city department do I call to find out?

In Oregon, you would call the Elections Department. If you call any county office, they should be able to tell you where to telephone.

Our house is about 3-1 (I won't say who is outnumbering who though, but I will say that my argument is winning in this household ;) ) WI is a swing state too, and like Donna said, if you've got ESP vote for my candidate LOL!!!

Are you really saying the whole state votes by mail? I am amazed to know that. I wonder what your "voters turn out rate is"?
I agree, I don't like that either. I have been tuned into a lot of talk show and political analysis and what I am hearing about mail in/absentee ballots is alarming.
Let's pray that every vote really does count...we do have a voice and we certainly voice it here, so get out and vote!!!
:woohoo: Go *************** ! :biglaugh:

I kind of like voting by mail. You can take your time reading everything and then just slip it in the mail. I work for the city so I put mine in the elections box that they have there. So easy! But, that is just my humble opinion. :)

election day, i am a nervous wreck, lol, i think i have election obsessive compulsive disorder. i keep refreshing cnn.com even though i know we won't have any results for a few hours at least, maybe even a few days.. i'm going nuts, AHHHHHHHHH!!!!
11-02-2004, 12:43 PM
I am with you...I am a news slut (sorry about the language guys) and am online watching the electoral college numbers...and watching ABC's coverage. :dizzy:
Donna, I am still perplexed about the voting process in Oregon....and i am curious why we don't have an exit poll response it it was all in by mail...am i missing something?
Plenty of time to vote for many of you further west, please VOTE!!
May the next round of debates begin.......an exciting day though for Americans!
11-02-2004, 02:33 PM
I VOTED today!!!!! :::::happy dance, jump up and down:::::::
ok so I have to admit this is my first time voting....when I turned 18, it didn't interest me and between then and now, I was lucky if I could make it to work or even out of bed.....so the IC is more manageable...I'm older, I'm more interested and it was a breeeeeeeze!!! The people at the polls were helpful and nice. Not one person made me feel like an idiot...I am SO GLAD I did it!!!! WOOOO HOOOOOOOO!!!! :D
11-02-2004, 02:42 PM
Been there...done that.. :)
11-02-2004, 02:43 PM
i reallyreally wanna ask who people voted for. is that wrong?? i'm so curious. eek! i wonder if we could just list who we voted for without getting into any arguments/political debate?
hehe, i'm obsessed, i admit it.
what do you think?
11-02-2004, 02:44 PM
It's never too late, right? My 22 yr old did also for the first time and was a little nervous about the process...since she works for attorneys, I told her she could handle it if she could handle that job. The folks that volunteer are very helpful, I think many are intimidated by feeling foolish. Now she thinks its a breeze...though we are not in the long line type of town, thank God.
My younger daughter voted absentee and sent it to MA, I was happy to see it recorded on her listing. :)
Well, hopefully lots of ICers turned out.....health care being a critical campaign issue.

I voted early this morning :) It feels good to vote for the first time. :woohoo:

I can't remember the last time I voted before this year.
