Voting...Register and Research (NVGR)

I haven't been on in a while, but I thought it important to take a second and talk to you guys about something serious. No matter what side of the line you're on, and especially if this is the first election you can take part in, I urge you to get out and register to vote. Not only to register, but take a good long look at the candidates, and put your voice to work.

I'm probably a little older than the average age here, but I remember when I was 22 and it was the first time I was able to cast my vote. I didn't, as I didn't much care for the real world yet, and didn't think much outside of my own world. But in 2001 that changed drastically, and I don't think I need to go further to give my reasons as it should be obvious. It took a bit to sink in that I had this wonderful gift, and made a choice to not use it thus far. That changed...

Over the last 7 years I've kept a close eye on what comes of our government and what impact our decisions, both on a local, state, and federal level have gotten us. I would urge you younger guys to think about what the next phase of your life has in store for you, and where you hope to see yourself in the future. Listen to the candidates, watch the debates, and try not to get caught up in the mud slinging and smearing that we know to be a part of either parties candidates and their campaigns.

Research these men and this woman, find out where they stand, and how that coincides with you and your views. Voting is a beautiful gift, and it is something I've learned to really cherish and appreciate. I hope that our youth, and first time eligible voters will get out there and get into the game. We are at a real crossroads here, so hopefully you get to see what's going on, where we are, and where you want to go, and get into the booth on November 4th.

Here are a few websites you can use to register, or get information on how to register in your state. I'm not spamming, and I won't link to any news or information sites because this isn't about being partisan, it's about being participants. Thanks for listening, and hopefully nobody feels this was way offbase for DTOID.
