If you can vote early, do so and don't step out of line if you have to wait four hours (unless you have to get back to work). If you're tempted just think how long the next four years would be if McCain wins. Surely a few hours isn't too much to ask for change? Take a sick day or vacation day for work if need be and ask someone who has already voted to watch your kids but whatever you do don't skip this historic and vitally important election. If you think the lines are long now for early voting just think of how long they'll be on election day November 4th. And after you vote make sure your friends and family who support Obama go out and vote. Barack has taken this campaign as far as he can and now it's our turn to do our part and vote for him in overwhelming numbers.
And we need you college students to turn out big time for Barack so if that's you don't get drunk or something and forget to vote. You'll regret it if he ends up losing. As I said in a previous post, skip class in need be and ask your professor if you can do some extra credit to make up for it. However, make sure and tell him or her why you're going to skip class to do your civic duty. I'm sure that they'll understand and even encourage you and if not then well it's just one class versus losing the most important election in a generation!!!
By the way, for my Florida readers it turns out that the state has extended voting hours so that more people with less flexable schedules can vote:
Long lines at the polls prompted Gov. Charlie Crist to sign an executive order on Tuesday, extending voting times to 12 hours a day.
Effective immediately, early voting sites statewide will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. through Oct. 31. Sat., Nov. 1 and Sun., Nov. 2, polls will be open a total of 12 hours, to be determined by the supervisors of elections in the individual counties.
