Today I was reading some of the recent stories about candidates/campaigns giving people of opposing persuasions bad/wrong information about the locations of voting polling places and/or sending party representatives to collect ballots from voters door-to-door.
Dear Every Candidate from Every Party: Don’t try to win by douchery. We all already know you’re a bunch of liars … There’s really no need to add cheating to the list as well. It’s uncalled for. If you’re that concerned about losing, maybe you should’ve put some of those resources to better use earlier in the campaign. This crap is like the worst collective hail Mary pass EVER, and it makes me sick.
For all my U.S. blog buddies looking for polling places tomorrow, below are some legit links to help you out. Please help me pass the CORRECT information along by sharing this list with family and friends. Facebook it. Tweet it. Being informed is our best defense. When in doubt, don’t take my word for it. Encourage people to contact their local elections office or Secretary of State’s office directly.
Regardless of age, gender, race, religion, or political party affiliation, every American has a right to cast their votes. No party or candidate has the right to take that away from us. Don’t let them. End of rant.
