I don't care who you vote for (although I'd love it if you voted for the guy I'm supporting) - just make sure you get out and vote today.

Every vote counts. Don't be like my co-worker, who, despite having the day off, said she isn't going to vote because NY is a blue state and her vote won't make a difference. If everyone said that, then maybe NY wouldn't come out blue tonight. Don't be apathetic - take a cue from this couple, who flew halfway around the world to vote because their absentee ballots didn't come through in time. If they can do it, you can stand in line for 2 hours to vote.

And, if that's not enough motivation, there's more: you can score free treats if you vote. Krispy Kreme is giving out free red white and blue star-shaped donuts, Ben & Jerry's is giving out free scoops, and Starbucks (ick) is giving out free tall brewed coffee to people who can prove they voted today (although the other day they changed their policy and are giving it to everyone, not just voters).

Now get out there and vote!

That's always bugged me. "My vote won't count anyway" always suggests to me that local politics, propositions, measures ... they don't matter at all to the person. As if getting the right president in office solves everything that we believe is wrong.

Good message. I'm doing my part to keep my state blue!
