november 7

If you’re fortunate enough to be able to take a holiday from work, please consider taking off 7 November. I am. I’ll be working as a poll observer for the first time outside of Seattle, while my mom works the polls in my hometown on the east coast. Work on an issue that means a lot to  you; help a campaign get out the vote; make a few phone calls; babysit some kids so someone else can canvass the neighborhood. An engaged and informed electorate is the best kind. Read the LWV pamphlet you got in your mail slot or box, and get out there.

And if you go to the polls to vote and you  have a little one, consider bringing him or her with you. Not always possible, I know, but a nice example of what grownups do that can be very cool.

Lady Miss Kier said it best: “Vote, baby, vote!”

  1. Groove is in the ballot, uh huh uh huh!

  2. Katie! I have “Vote Baby Vote” . It’s from the second full CD from Deee-lite, and was issued in time for the ’92 election. “Let’s face it, it’s a pro-choice album!” is on the cover art. Oh, for another night of Election Night victory nookie… it’s been a long time.
