I just voted absentee.
Be sure you vote. This is a terribly important election.
More important, if you can, volunteer.
Contact your state or county party. They can almost certainly use you.
Obviously, to readers of this blog, I want Bush to win and I want more Republicans to do this than Democrats.
But people from either party who want to make sure this election is conducted fairly and legally should get involved. Make sure this election goes the way it is supposed to. Do not tolerate anything else, from your own side or from the other side.
The reason our system works is because citizens stay alert and make sure it works the way it is supposed to. That’s the only way it works. It is not somebody else’s job. It is your job as a citizen.
I have volunteered in other elections in the past and I had very interesting experiences. Work demands prevent me from doing anything this year beyond voting. I wish that was not so. If I could, I’d be going to Milwaukee with other Republican lawyers to make sure no vote fraud occurs there. Democrats have similar initiatives in place, as they should.
If you can possibly participate in the process beyond just voting in this very important election I strongly, strongly urge you to do so.
