Here in the great state of Oregon, we vote by mail. I should say, those who actually receive a ballot through the mail vote that way. I myself (and hubby as well) have not received our ballot, although we have received our voter's information pamphlet (go figure).
Could there be a conspiracy at work here? Hahaha
It's not as if the fate of the Country is hanging on our two votes;) But I expect to be saying I told you so to quite a few people in the near future, and I lose all rights to using that phrase if I don't vote.
Could it be that they have learned that I have downright archaic beliefs? I'm thinking that I would have fit in just fine with our founding fathers. I've always said I was born in the wrong century;) I'm also thinking they have turned over in their graves many a time at some of the interpretations rendered of their original writings. I'm still trying to figure out some of them myself.
All kidding aside (and hopefully you could tell I was kidding, except for the founding fathers bit), I am a firm believer in voting. If for no other reason, out of respect for those who have given their lives to earn my (and your) Freedom. If they could do such a noble thing, I'm thinking taking a few moments out of my time is not too much to ask. Wouldn't you agree? I'm sure those in other countries who have no voice in their government would. It's something to think about.
If I had a ballot that is;)
EDIT: Never fear, I'll be making a call to my local friendly political party today, which will no doubt set the wheels in motion for receiving my long lost ballot. I suspicion it may have something to do with my somewhat erratic mailman. You don't suppose he could be for the other party, do you? :)
