Voting for change

· 2004 Election

I dragged my wheezy lungs up to the school on the hill to cast my ballot. I’ve never missed an election and I always think it’s important to vote, but even in this decidedly non-swing state (California) I felt like my vote counted more than ever this time.
The poll workers told me they had a huge turnout in the early morning before-work hours. Here in California where we know we aren’t deciding the election ourselves, people still feel an urgent need to stand up and be counted this time around.
I hope everyone reading this votes, regardless of your political leanings. The more involvement we have the better for our democracy.
I may have mentioned this already, but my cohorts and I at Personal Democracy Forum will be blogging the election all day, looking for the online / technology / wired angle.
