To My American Readers...

Hubby-Eric and I have already voted, via mail, several days ago. I believe in democracy, and I believe the only message that you send if you do not vote is the message that you are too lazy to care. Yes, I know that some of you think that the message you are sending by not voting is dissatisfaction, but your intent is not clear. If you want to show dissatisfaction, send in a ballot with write-in votes or with "none of the above" in every race... but at least make the effort!

With that in mind, I urge you to vote today, regardless of your political beliefs. Democracy requires participation. I'm ashamed at the low turnout in my country's elections.
