Okay, here it is. My normal “Don’t Forget to Vote” email. It is a little late this year as things have been hectic. Once again, I believe it is very important for you all to get out and vote tomorrow. Yes, I know, it is not a Presidential Election year (I bet some of you didn’t even know we voted in the interim), but it is a VERY important election year. Democrats are likely to take control of the House, and some believe the Senate (I say not a chance). In Texas, you need to make a decision in the Governor’s race. I am not going to go over all the voter statistics I normally do..by know you should know that the voter turnout is the US is shameful and we should do more to excerise our right to vote (we fought hard for that right and many people do not have it!).
It was almost a historic election year. One friend of mine (I won’t name names…but many of you will be able to guess) is very anti-government. (I told you, I have all types of friends…my favorites are the ones who are NOT just like me!) He often calls me to complain about everything from gas prices, to Bush’s iraq policy, to border issues. Naturally I take his complaints and pass them along straight to the top! Anyway, this friend of mine has NEVER voted! NEVER! I know, it kills me too!! Well this year, he was so upset about the Texas Governor’s race he decided he was going to vote for Kinky. I was so excited! Unfortunately, he decided this after the voter registration deadline. So, he continues to be the only person I know who has NEVER voted. Just once in my lifetime, this friend of mine will cast a vote in an election. It is one of my many goals in life.
Tomorrow please make sure you leave time to vote (between 7a.m. -7 p.m.) I hear you, I don’t know who to vote for? I don’t know where to go? What do I need to vote? Well, that’s why I am here. Please check out the information below.
Need a little information about the candidates in your races?
Candidate Information by State:
Where do I go to vote tomorrow?
You need your voter registration card, but if you don’t have it, you need a valid ID.
You can find more information on what is a valid ID on the Voter 411 website.

So with all this information, you really have no excuse. It won’t take you but 5 minutes to go vote. Additionally for those of you in the Houston, Texas area I will only make one comment. You are being asked to write in a Republican candidate to replace Tom Delay. I would ask that you to consider the Democrat Candidate Nick Lampson. He spent 8 years in Congress before he was ousted 2 years ago. With the likelyness that the Democrats will gain control of the House of Representatives, Congressman Lampson will be in a good position to provide for Houston since he already has 8 years of Congressional experience.
That’s it for me. Don’t come home unless you get one of those I VOTED stickers. Make me proud…let me know you have voted. As you suspect, I voted by Absentee Ballot last week (especially since my vote could be the difference between which party controls the Senate!)
