Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that today is election day.
You're not gonna want to tell people in 10 years that you don't remember what you did today, so if you're able to vote in this election and still don't know where to cast you vote, you just lost your best excuse for not doing so:
You can also test your prognostication ability against the pundits by entering our election prediction sweepstakes:
- First prize: one month's worth of FDL Book Salon titles.
- Second prize: a package of books, CDs and DVDs courtesy of Blue America
- Third prize: FDL t-shirt and mug, plus two tickets to the Inauguration special performance of "Wake Up World"
I'll be on GritTV with Laura Flanders at noon ET. Watch live on firedoglake.com and call in toll-free at 866-466-2961 and let us know what you're thinking.
And I'll also be on BBC World News all night until the bitter end, hopefully trying to figure out how to make House and Senate races interesting to an international audience.
If you're already voted, pat yourself on the back -- and take someone you love to the polls!
Jane asks us to take someone we love to the polls. I went one better [or worse] -- I rode with my neighbor, who is new in town and didn't know where to go, to our polling place. On the way there we argued politics, but neither of us convinced the other, and we ended up effectively canceling out each other's vote. At least we agreed on one thing -- VOTE! [how I voted]
Such is the nature of politics and friendships.
