Tomorrow, U.S. citizens have the privilege of going to the polls to choose our next President. The fact that every citizen, regardless of gender, race or class (with a couple of exceptions for felons) over the age of 18 is allowed to vote is remarkable.

I have very specific hopes for the outcome of this election but that is beside the point. I am asking you to take the time out of your day tomorrow to go to your local polling place and exercise that privilege.

If you do not, you can't complain about political things for four years. That's an awfully long time to go without complaining. I would not want to take that risk.

Thanks for the reminder. It prompted me to be sure that everyone who works here feels comfortable taking the time out of their day to cast a ballot.
