Normally this is where I say, "Vote your conscience." This year, in light of America's political upheaval, I'm saying, "Please don't saw off the branch we're standing on." Look for candidates who support policies that improve health, happiness, the environment, and other aspects of survival and sanity.

Know yourself. Know the issues. Know the candidates. VOTE.

In the Poetry Fishbowl on November 6, if you vote and post "I voted" under the linkback perk poem, that will earn you an extra verse. If you register to vote, volunteer at a registry, or otherwise participate in election activity before then, pick a linkback and I'll give you a verse.
