Okay, I filled out my ballot. (Hooray for Oregon’s vote-by-mail system!) Technically, until it is dropped off appropriately, I haven’t actually voted. But, still: If you live in my part of the country and if you care about any of the issues in play (term limits, the governor’s race, medical spending, insurance rates, abortion), please, please vote. “My vote won’t count anyway” doesn’t really hold water with me, folks. As the saying goes, you lose your right to bitch about the state of things when you fail to vote on them.
Unless you’re under legal voting age, that is.
Now, of course, I can gripe and moan all I want, ’cause the rest of the populace will vote against me on most of the important stuff anyway. Heh.
