Yup...it was!

his big black bus caused quite a stir.. LOL. But it was totally cool, and since we didn't get to see him at city park, it was cool to see him in our little town.

He has our votes

I'm honored. I'd like to ask that all of my votes go to Obama. PLEASE. If for no one else, like the entire world, do it for me.

If at all possible, early vote. If, when voting, they try to get you to use a provisional ballot (listen up Florida and Colorado *g* not to mention Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Nevada, Pennsylvania, etc. boy-oh-boy that list of swing states is getting might big!), do whatever you can to prove you are registered properly and to use a normal ballot. Of course if your last hope is a provisional, then use it, but try, try, try, and then document any nonsense or hanky-panky.

If you have a video camera, bring it with you. You can't film within x-amount of feet of a polling place, so you must look up the voting laws in your own state. If people are encountering trouble voting, get it on camera. As people come out, ask them what happened and film it. Just keep the correct distance from the polls. Who knows, could lead to a whole new career on CNN.

If you are in line when the polls close, you are entitled to VOTE!!!

Let's elect Barack Obama by our votes on November 4. Popular AND electoral. No courts, no Katherine Harris. After an 8 year nightmare, I think we all deserve a good night's sleep.

One more thing... There is a story being circulated in Virginia that due to heavy voter turnout, an emergency session of the legislature was called and as a result, Republicans are to vote on the 4th and Democrats on the 5th.

This is only ONE example of the crap being thrown around. Everyone is to vote on the 4th. If you hear anyone say otherwise, it is NOT true. If you know someone who has been told they are not to vote on the 4th, it is NOT true.

We all vote next Tuesday, November 4! Spread the word!
