Rock the Vote!

Tuesday, 5 February 2008

It’s Super-Duper Tuesday!!! That’s right. In more than 20 states today, Americans will be partifipating in the democratic process with primaries or caucuses being held in Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho (D), Illinois, Kansas (D), Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana (R), New Jersey, New Mexico (D), New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia (R).

Here’s a map to help:

Yup — 2/3 of the Jewish population will be voting today!!

I’m voting at the end of the day. Ever since the kids were born, I’ve always voted at the end of the day so that the kids could “help.” And then we’ll head home and watch the returns all night. Pizza and politics — God Bless America!!

I must admit that the math thing has got me royally confused. I know, so what else is new. But this election it really is complicated — at least as far as the Democrats are concerned. None of this “winner takes all” stuff for them! Thank God for Beernut — he’ll be helping me with the math.

As I mentioned to some folks on Sunday, please do vote today. Every vote counts. Not just in the election. Did you know that future delegate allotment is affected by how many people show up to vote in today’s election?

Unless you’re from Florida. As DadGiraffe recently quipped, “Florida is the new Chicago.”

And for those of you from the Right Coast or the Flyover Zone, here’s some insight into my crazy state.

    Don’t know about you but as an instant-gratification girl of Gen X, it was a major disappointment to wake up and:
    (a) not have a clear winner;
    and
    (b) still not have a darn grasp of the primary math!!!
