Today's the day

Vote.
Just vote, and you'll have done your job today.

"I'm not voting, cause there ain't gonna be no change until Jehovah comes." That was what one older Floridian told me when I called to prompt her to vote today. I started to argue, then realized, well, she probably isn't registered. And odds are, she wouldn't vote for my candidate anyway!

Anyone else out there phone banking or calling from home*, canvassing, or whatever? Anyone have any horror stories about waits at the polls? (Even here in liberal-lefty Cambridge, there's a wait! But a short one, about 25 minutes.) Anyone see someone get turned away?


*If anyone wants the info for calling voters from home, email me!

And if you want to do your job/and your country a real favor, vote Obama.

The rumor that more young people are voting was certainly true in Somerville, where I waited on line for more than an hour this morning. Thank the lord for bake-sale booths with fresh coffee! Also for my Ipod which kept me occupied. I was hoping it would play something appropriate when I cast my vote-- not sure if "Strychnine" by the Sonics qualifies or not!
