Election Day!

I just voted! Woot!

I was given a sticker that reads "My Vote Counted," which I wear with bitter irony, since Indiana's voter ID law ensures that not everyone's vote will count; that not everyone will have a vote.

One of my earliest political memories is feeling total and complete awe upon first understanding that one day I'd get to help elect the president. I consider the right to vote about as close to sacred as anything gets in my secular world, and I have nothing but unadulterated contempt for anyone who tries to deny other people that right.

My vote is precious to me, and your vote is precious to me, too.

If you need information on where to go to vote today, the League of Women Voters has a nifty little website that will give you your polling station and other important voting information.
