Let's take a break from the World Series and football to consider our civic duty: Election Day is Tuesday.
Have the tedious, nasty campaign ads turned you off? Snap out of it! !!!VOTE!!! Whether or not there's a seismic power shift in Congress, you should exercise your personal power at the polls. Concerned about the subterfuge of campaign financing? Cast your own secret ballot.
I liken this to choosing a fantasy team. Do a little research this weekend...make your picks...and get your results Tuesday night. (It seems I have thirteen little known state judges and two obscure reps from the Soil and Water Conservation District on my active roster!?! This is hard.)
Here's an excellent web site to help with those picks: NCvoterGuide.org
You enter your county of residence and the web site lists all the applicable races and candidates...with links to their bios. Check it out. It's the Yahoo! Fantasy Sports of electoral politics.
