Go vote.

Don't listen to the media, who pretend this election has already been decided by the small minority of people who participate in polling.

Don't listen to the people who are saying one candidate already has things wrapped up. He doesn't, and the flurry of activity coming out of his campaign says he doesn't.

Don't stay home thinking your vote doesn't matter. You have a say in who rules over this country for the next four years.

Go vote. Don't stay home today. Elections are decided by people, not polls.

Go vote.

I agree.

I was quite peeved to see that The Washington Post pretty much said - at 10 AM EST - that one guy has the "clear advantage". I hate, hate, hate when the news folks do that stuff.

VOTE people! :)

I did. I stood in the rain at 5:45am and I'm proud of it.

It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings.

I voted the first day we had early voting. The media makes me sick - they need to back off and be quiet. No predictions needed - it just hypes everyone up.

I respect McCain but I voted for Obama. Yes, polls can be wrong...Hillary proved that in NH. However, even one of the Repuclican advisors (Mr. Rollins) stated on CNN last evening that he thought Obama was going to win. Let's not blame it all the media but be intelligent voters who research the issues by going to each candidates approved web site and see where they stand on health care, etc. I hate it, hate it, when people vote strict party lines no matter. I voted for my Republican governor last Thursday and Democrat for President.

I was also out there at 5:45 this morning with my 8 yr old daughter. She wanted to go see what it was like, and I couldn't think of any reason not to let her go.

My husband almost didn't get to vote - the polling judge didn't accept his signature and ID as being him....it wasn't until a neighbor showed up to vote and vouched for him that they let him vote. Can you believe it? In Chicago no less!

Hi Jen,
Just wanted to say TOUCHE' on the "Final Word on the Election" post. You summed up my feelings precisely. Thanks for the apt WSJ article link.
I'm commenting here because, for some reason, the post shows up in my Google Reader feed, but not at your website...
Best to you.
