It's 8:00am eastern time and I'm back from the polls. I think it is vitally important that everyone votes today (not just this election, but every election). I hear a lot of grousing about how unlikeable either candidate is, but that's just a smokescreen for neglect and laziness. Voting isn't just a right and a privilege, it is a responsibility. The more people vote, the more that special interests' power gets diluted, and that is good for democracy, good for America.
