Go vote tomorrow! Tuesday November 4th! Though it varies by state ( a quick search brought up this site with A lot of helpful info), Bring your ID!
There's enough pundits out there to tell why and where's fors of who and what to vote for ( locally I often look at, but don't always 100% agree with the SF Bay Guardian's Clean Slate guide) but it's a historically important election where the country could turn away from the failed agenda and mistakes of the last Eight years! Go vote! If you feel disenfranchised by the two major parties- vote third party to let them know you're out there and disagree!If you're in a "swing state" where every vote counts- make sure it counts! Go early!
In the punk community people often debate the signifigance of voting, "if Voting changed anything they'd make it illegal". There's enough local ballot measures ( No On 8!) in california that nullify that and make it worth making it out to the polls.
Cool thing in The U.S. is you have the choice to vote for whoever you want to, vote for a third party as a protest vote or not vote it all.
Bad thing is assuming you'll always have that choice, and that people won't eventually take advantage of your apathy and indifference.
One our favorite stores and mailorders, DR. Strange records in Southern California is having an election sale tomorrow if you're in So Cal and can make it out to their store in Alta Loma, Check it out.They stock almost all Prank titles- Here's the details:"Tuesday, November 4th is Election day and we are having a SALE! Just show up to the store with your "I Voted" sticker [given at your polling place] and you'll receive 20% off EVERYTHING we sell; Rare Records, cd's, Fred Perry's, Shoes, EVERYTHING!

If you're not by his store, it's worth getting on Dr. Strange's mailing list as they do periodic updates with mailorder stuff and rare records too! ( I've picked up everything from the SOTLIMPA 12" to the ATTAQUE SONORO Comp to ARTICLES OF FAITH "Wait" off their list...it's worth getting on!)
