If you’re anything like me, you’re probably at your wit’s end with being bombarded by political ads every time you turn on the TV. And, if you’re not like me and were oblivious to the fact they have been running nonstop for the past few days, you must live under a rock.
The good news is that after tomorrow, you’ll get to enjoy your favorite TV shows again, minus the noise.
Because, tomorrow is November 2, which is Election Day! This year is the 2010 US mid-term elections.
If you haven’t been paying attention, don’t worry. We’re not voting for the President yet, but it’s still very important.
Mid-terms are every two years, when all 435 members of the House of Representatives stand for re-election. Up for grabs this year are 37 out of 100 seats in the Senate and 37 Governorships. You can go to your Secretary of State website to find all the voting information you need.
If you’re a registered voter, get out and vote tomorrow! If you’re not, all you have to do is print out a voter registration application online, fill it out and mail it in. Then, you’ll be able to make a difference in the next election. Remember to educate yourself about the candidates and issues before you make your way to the polls!
I’ll be sporting my “I Voted” sticker proudly tomorrow. Will you?
