Of course you should.

It is your duty as a citizen of the USA.

If you don’t and it’s because you like none of the candidates and are not set on issues, then that’s your right.

If you don’t and it is because you are too lazy, then you don’t deserve to complain if policy is established that you don’t like.

If neither apply to you, then vote.

Hope that helps you decide.

You’re welcome.

I live in a heavy red state, so they'll just throw out my ballot anyways ...




... But I guess it's a legit reason to be late for work!

Agreed laziness can’t be a factor

I saw on facebook that because of expected high turn out and long lines that Democrats should wait until Thursday.

I was hoping to hitch a ride to the polls on one of those buses that brings in all the illegal aliens... but can't seem to find them anywhere... apparently they've activated their Romulan Cloaking device.

This thread keeps breaking and I keep fixing the code in it

Maybe they're trying to tell us something
