Election 2008: Voting for change!

United States — By on October 20, 2008 at 4:00 pm

I filled out absentee ballot this weekend and dropped it off in the mailbox on the way to work this morning. Yay for the electoral process. Cheers for change I can believe in!

As much as I would have loved to do the deed with my fellow New Yorkers on November 4th, I failed to switch my registration from Florida (where I’m from) in time. Oops! Can’t say I’m disappointed…I have a feeling it might make more difference down there anyway.

I am a tad embarrassed to admit, this is my FIRST TIME casting a ballot in a presidential election (any election, really) but I thought this was a pretty important time to get involved. Plus, I did see a few centenarians casting their votes for the very first time on CNN, so I figure I’m still 70 years ahead of the game.

If you live in New York State and plan to be out of town on election day, you still have time to get an absentee ballot! Click here to snag a form, and read how and where to send it here.
