I always encourage everyone to vote on election day. Often in my very red state, it feels like a pointless exercise and that my vote is meaningless. It isn't. It is my privilege as an American to express my opinion and even when I know that no one I vote for will win anything, at least my displeasure with who is in power is counted.

And besides, I want to be able to complain about all the idiots my fellow Texans will leave me stuck with and embarrassed by for me with for the next few years.

And both Texas teams are losing tonight--not looking like a good week for us liberal Texans. And yes, there are quite a few of us.

I thought by the title of your post you were talking about that magazine poll to vote on Supernatural to be the cover.

Funny you're asking people to vote while here voting is compulsory and so many people don't want to vote bc of that.

No, I am always appalled at how many Americans cannot be bothered to vote. But wouldn't want it to be compulsory either.
