Hey my readers in the U.S.,
You know what would make puppies weep and and cause the sun to crash into the Earth in a fiery blaze? Your not voting if you are eligible to vote.
Please don't make puppies sad, or cause the apocalypse. If you haven't voted and you are eligible to vote, please be sure to vote before Election Day voting wraps up today.
If you aren't registered to vote, you can do so at the polls today in Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, Washington D.C., Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
Here is a great resource for finding your local polling place, and finding out what each state's ID requirements are. Here is the Spanish version. (Not every state requires a state-issued ID- in Pennsylvania, for example- despite what some voter suppression efforts may lead people to believe. ^_^ )
Last but certainly not least- marriage equality is on the ballot in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington, so be a love if you live in those states and support marriage equality (or in Minnesota's case, no greater obstacle in the push for equality) with your ballot! ^_^
Update: If you have a problem at your polling place, you can call 1-866-OURVOTE for support. Also, best not to photograph your vote in some areas.
Update 2: As long as you are in line before the doors close at your polling location, you must be allowed to vote. Again, 1-866-OURVOTE is the number to call if you have problems with that.
