Are you registered to vote!? The election is November 4th and registration ends a few weeks prior. If you aren't registered, what's your excuse? Mine was I thought you needed a valid drivers licence. FALSE! You just need the last 4 digits of your social security #. That's it! Is your excuse that you don't have the time? It takes 3 minutes! Don't know how? Go to www.maps.google.com/vote. Put in your home address and it will send you to the registration website for your state.
Everyone can see that the U.S. is not in a great place right now. You might not be sure what to do to fix it, but what will certainly make matters worse is not voting. Here is a cool and funny clip a smart friend sent me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UaRXvRwhOk. Check it out and REGISTER TO VOTE! And if you need another push, please be inspired by Marvin Gaye's What's Going On.
