Go vote!

Just a friendly reminder, if you are eligible to vote, then VOTE! Make your voice heard, no matter who or what you stand for. Voting is a privilege which many people around the world can only dream of.

No, you said to take a walk around Lake Harriet....

I did however also vote. And agree, everyone should vote, but with the caveat to do so intelligently (not because of party or someone told you).

Counterpoint: if you need some random person on an Internet forum about planes to remind you to vote, you probably shouldn't be voting in the first place. Or, to be honest, even ring your own shoelaces.

Don’t vote, it only encourages the bar stewards to run.

I'll raise you $100:

If you need Fox News to send their #1 rated "news guy" to campaign with the President to encourage you to vote Republican you should do the American gene pool a massive favor and shoot yourself in the face, ideally before you have any children. But let's not be too picky.

I do try hard to contain myself but happened across that headline earlier and thought it was a joke. Alas it was true, my country’s largest cable news company actually campaigned with Trump at his final rally to encourage people to vote for GOP straight down the ballot. It’s like living in a 1950s banana republic.

AND he promised just hours earlier that he wouldn't and called everyone else fake news

I voted. Took 15 minutes.

I'm looking forward to the freakouts and the tears and the ratcheted up anger and vitriol that is to come.

The results are basically already in. Dems win the house and Republicans pick up seats in the Senate.

The blue wave wasn't as big as anticipated but they achieved their goal of derailing Trump until 2020. Now come the flood of executive orders while conservative judges will be confirmed at a record pace changing US society for the next generation. One more SC seat and that's it for the next 40 years.

I didn't expect Rs to gain more Senate seats, I thought it would stay the same because "blue wave" and all. But, I guess the blue wave was a purple wave.

Looks like about 49% of eligible voters showed up to vote. Although higher than last time, it is still abominably low (IMHO).
So, I don't want to hear any whining about current politics by those who failed to show up at the ballot box... You missed your chance!

Especially among the younger cohort (18-29), only 31% showed up to vote.

It took 15 minutes for me - from leaving the house to returning. A 3 minute drive each way, a party line vote for the Dems and the rest of the time was reading the questions. I was a Yes on every question but one and I always vote yes to retain Judges. Tulsa is so Red that I only really need to vote for the Questions.

I voted absentee for the first time this year. It's so unbelievably convenient, I'm not sure why more people don't do it.
