Some Cynics on Voting

"There is no such thing as not voting; you either do it or you vote by staying at home and tacitly double the value of the voter's vote."  David Foster Wallace

"Every election is decided by the people who show up."  Larry J. Sabato

"If pigs could vote, the man with the slop bucket would be elected swineherd every time, no matter how much slaughtering he did on the side."  Orson Scott Carol

"When I was a boy, I was told that anybody could become President.  I'm beginning to believe it."  Clarence Darrow


Get out the vote!  Offer a ride to the polls to an elderly neighbor; tell the parents with the young family next door that you'd be happy to watch their kids while they go vote.  Nag your friends and family and co-workers to get the lead out and the vote in.

And bartenders - give customers who are carrying ballot stubs and/or wearing "I Voted" stickers a free drink!
