I'll be gone for most of the day today so it's up to the other contributors to keep you company. Today is Election Day! Not only should you go vote for The Bilerico Project, but also go vote for your local politicians. Whether you like the ones you have or you support the challengers, do your civic duty by voting. You can't bitch if you didn't care enough to spend 5 minutes filling in a few ovals.
So here's today's open thread question... Imagine if our system of voting for President were a tad bit different. All candidates are write-ins in this scenario to make sure that the process is open to anyone. Keeping in mind that everyone else is just writing in names too - from Hillary Clinton to Mitt Romney to Mickey Mouse.
Who do you vote for? Current candidate or just a great possibility - the choices are endless. My choice? Al Gore - hands down. I think it's about time he took the position he was elected to in 2000.
For our Indiana readers: Remember our state's new (and completely unnecessary) Voter ID law. You must bring a state-issued photo ID with the same address on it where you are registered to vote. If it's your first time voting, you may be asked to provide a bill or paycheck stub with your address on it as well.
