Lesson #1553 - Undecided Voters

Undecided voters are - for the most part - as real as Bigfoot and the Yeti at this point, but people who won't vote do amount to a scary number. I understand when people feel their votes may not matter; in a national election, that certainly may be true to some extent. But you might have some influence in local elections, or on referendums, or on town budgets - people who say their vote won't matter have not educated themselves on all the issues or people they will have a chance to vote on or elect.

And I say this as votes to make gay marriage legal will be a part of the election in Maine, Maryland, and Washington, and to some extent Minnesota, too. And if you don't think the people you elect locally will influence your daily life, you probably should find out.

So, please. Vote.
