Vote!

If you're like me, you often show up to vote and discover a bevy of unfamiliar names on the ballot. Who are these people? Where do they stand on the issues? Should I simply vote along party lines (or against parties and vote only for third parties)? And what the heck is "Comptroller Third Class, Forward Launch Tubes"?

Much better is to research all your candidates for office so the Bad Guys can't sneak their minions in under the radar at the local level. The local paper should have all the platforms. Here's the Kansas voter's guide via the LJWorld. However, I do miss Seattle's The Stranger with its Voter's Cheatsheet.



Vote, dammit, or you don't get to bitch about how things turn out!

Best,
Chris
