Go Vote!

Volume 7, Issue 191; 02 Nov 2004; last modified 08 Oct 2010

It’s the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of an election year. Go vote, America!

No matter who you vote for, your vote counts. Go. Now. Stop reading. Go. Vote!

Under ordinary circumstances, I’d be inclined to apologize for the provincial nature of this essay, relevant, as it is, to only a single country on the globe. But these don’t feel like ordinary circumstances and I expect a fair portion of the globe really cares about the outcome this time.

I voted my conscience this morning, now go vote yours.


Correction: it's the first Tuesday after the the first Monday . Ned explains: http://www.nedbatchelder.com/blog/200410.html#e20041025T080056

And I think this essay is important to the whole globe, as you said...

Good catch, thanks Roberto.

Sorry for nitpicking... but I read about the election day and found it interesting. :) In Brazil it's always on the same day -- October 15, IIRC.

Norm, no apologies necessary. I for one care more about the outcome of the US election, than the recent one in my own country.
