One Vote Can Make a Difference November 11, 2008

I completely support a popular voting system in our elections as opposed to the electoral college because then votes count regardless of what color state you live in.  Sometimes elections are determined by a very narrow margin like this one I read about in the Freakonomics Blog.

In Lincoln County, Mississippi the elections commissioner was determined by a single vote.  Janie Sisco unseated 20-year-incumbent Charles Monroe Smith.  I thought it was interesting that the vote was 1,580 to 1,579 and all came down to one person making a difference.  Just goes to show that your vote can count.

Don’t Forget to Vote November 4, 2008

vote-smart-buttonAfter a long last few months, the big day is finally here.  This is going to be a historic election.  For the first time in history, the US will have either a black man or a woman holding office in our executive branch.  We have heard a lot of arguments for and against each candidate so now all I can say is: don’t forget to go out and vote.  It is one of the most important things you can do in a Democratic nation.  I’m on my way right now!

Most of you know who I plan on voting for if you’ve read any of my blog at all.  But, remember to vote.  You can still register at the county clerk’s office until October 20 if you haven’t already.

Voting is the most important thing you can do in a Democracy regardless of who you vote for.  There are a lot of interesting races this year….Super Dell is running for the governor of Utah after all.  And on the national level regardless of what happens, it will be legendary.  It will be the first time a black man or a woman has ever been in the presidential/vice presidential office.

I think I’m going to have an election party, gathering if you will, on November 4.  We can watch the results come in and there will be food.  Let me know if you want to come.

I’m excited for this one.  My fingers are crossed!
