It’s Election Day 2008…

And you can vote however you’d like, just ask these kids that are all over YouTube:

While I certainly hope that my candidate wins, I don’t plan on campaigning here for that person. (In fact, I’d prefer a landslide so that I don’t have to go to bed unsure of the outcome. I know it’s unlikely given how the polls are constantly up and down and super close between McCain and Obama, but I can hope.) Honestly, I hope that most people know who they’ll be voting for in the next few hours already. I hope that people have educated themselves on the candidates, the issues, the propositions, and the measures because even though it’s a lot of work, it’s a privilege. We are blessed to be able to vote and it’s our duty to vote.

P.S. Take a coloring book, sudoku, crossword, etc… with you to the polls. There will be some long lines (hopefully).
