The Day is Here
This could have been a line to anywhere. As it was, this particular line several blocks long in downtown Cincinnati on a Monday afternoon, leading to history.
I'm proud to say I was the first person to finish filling out my ballot at my precinct at 6:45 this morning. Will be among those who do as well?
The time has come. As a working journalist, I can't ethically use my blog to advocate for any political candidate. But I can emphatically say this: if you're able-bodied and eligible but choose not to vote today, you have abdicated the fundamental right and obligation that comes with American citizenship. Pull the lever for whom you will, but make sure you pull it.
*I'll be back to the economy tomorrow. In the meantime, if you've got a cameraphone on you and are passing a polling station today, email me a quick picture and let me know what state you're from. I'd like to chronicle the turnout in a photo gallery tomorrow.*
