I'll be gone for most of the day today so it's up to the other contributors to keep you company. Today is Election Day! Not only should you go vote for The Bilerico Project, but also go vote for your local politicians. Whether you like the ones you have or you support the challengers, do your civic duty by voting. You can't bitch if you didn't care enough to spend 5 minutes filling in a few ovals.

All candidates are write-ins in this scenario to make sure that the process is open to anyone. Keeping in mind that everyone else is just writing in names too - from Hillary Clinton to Mitt Romney to Mickey Mouse.

Who do you vote for? Current candidate or just a great possibility - the choices are endless. My choice? Al Gore - hands down. I think it's about time he took the position he was elected to in 2000.

For our Indiana readers: Remember our state's new (and completely unnecessary) Voter ID law. You must bring a state-issued photo ID with the same address on it where you are registered to vote. If it's your first time voting, you may be asked to provide a bill or paycheck stub with your address on it as well.

it does seem ridiculous to bring an ID to vote when the electronic voting machines are themselves so open to fraud and tampering even with a paper trail.

Some things should not be improved upon with technology. Hand counted paper ballets in the view of the public is the only honest way to run an election.

Oh and for the first time in perhaps 20+ years i am voting republican, No not Him(are you untz) but Dr Ron Paul.

Take care
