If It Walks Like a Duck…

Let’s Make It Do What It Do, Baby!

Posted on: November 4, 2008


Ok people.  The BIG DAY is here.  Here’s a few things to remember today while you’re out getting your vote on:

  • Lines WILL (not might…WILL) be incredibly and unusually long.  Do not get discouraged.  Bring your Ipod, drinks, snacks, and your cell phone to check out updates to the If It Walks blog (hopefully you have a web browser on your phone).  If your boss is trippin’, give them a nice warm mug of STFU and carry on to the polls.  Most polls open at 6am. 
  • DO NOT wear any candidate’s paraphernalia to the polls–it is against the rules in several states.
  • Verify your polling place NOW.  CLICK HERE to verify.
  • DO NOT let a poll worker tell you that you are not registered or cannot vote there when you believe otherwise.  Call the Civil Rights Division of the US Dept. of Justice at (800) 253-3931.
  • Voting on your state and local officials and issues are just as important as the Presidential candidate.  Look up that info for your area NOW.
  • Shenanigans are very likely to pop off Election Tuesday.  Keep your cool and call the above number for assistance.
  • Take YOUR ID.  Also bring your voter registration card just in case.
  • You CANNOT vote on Nov. 5th, despite what some people are saying.
  • Take others to the polls who can’t make it there on their own.

I was lucky. Hardly a line at all!
