Celebrate Freedom

Your political freedom matters. Don't take it for granted – if habeas corpus can go, what's next? – and think your vote and your voice can't make a difference. Elections are often close and your opinion counts.

You can make it count even more by being prepared and informed.

Many of my readers have an election coming up on Tuesday, so, gang, if you haven't already prepared your sample ballot, get to it. Review the information that's come to you in the mail, your email and from discussions with friends. Check out the non-partisan information at Smart Voter. Consider the options and make your choices.

While you're at it, confirm your polling location and see if there's anything you can do in advance to make your day go smoother as you take a few minutes out of it to vote.

Don't have an election? Take a little time to go through any mail, email or to-do notes you have about political involvement or charities. Been meaning to write that little check to Doctors Without Borders or Amnesty International? Planning to write a letter or a blog post about a good cause or change people can make? Do it today.

One thought on “Celebrate Freedom”

  1. I can’t recommend publius.org highly enough — It lists all your candidates, the text of any ballot proposals, gives maps and directiosn to your polling site, links to candidate webpages and the CRC, and even has videos to show you the mechanics of filling out the ballot that your district will be using.
