In a break from our regularly scheduled programming (I will be bringing you my October Income report on Friday, so stay tuned!) I want to remind everyone living in the United States that today is election day. If you have been living under a rock for the last year you may not know that today is the day we decide if we keep our current president (Barack Obama) or replace him with Mitt Romney. If you don’t live in the US, then you can ignore this post and come back on Friday.
Luckily for my wife and I, we took advantage of early voting and voted over two weeks ago. If you haven’t voted yet, just keep in mind that the lines might be long, but it will be worth it to have your voice be part of the national/state/local conversation that’s going on. If you haven’t voted before or are new to your area, I’ve put together some resources below to hopefully help you out with any questions you may have.
- If you haven’t registered to vote, you can take care of this today in 9 states and the District of Columbia, just check with your state election board (Google is your friend here!)
- If you’re not sure if you’re registered to vote (maybe you moved recently, have a lousy memory, etc) – check out Can I Vote – and it will send you to the right link to tell you if you are registered
- General voting information from the government
- Vote411.org gives you the information you need – polling locations, ID requirements, links to verify your voter registration status, and even information on all the candidates and issues on the ballot
- VoteSmart.org is very similar to Vote411, but once you put in your address it just shows you the different electoral issues you will be voting on – starting at the national level (president) and going down as far as necessary. This is very helpful, because there is a lot more going on today than just electing the next president, and in a lot of ways local politics will impact you more directly than national ones.
- Candidate websites – I won’t link to them here, but you can search for either presidential candidate and find lots of information on their websites
- Poll Opening / Closing Times can be found here
While you may think that your vote “doesn’t count” because you don’t live in one of the swing states (these are states where neither candidate has a significant lead and either could win), it is still important to have your vote counted. Of course, you are not required to vote, but as a naturalized citizen I get a sense of pride and enjoyment every time I visit my polling place. Hopefully you will as well, regardless of the outcome of today’s presidential election!
