Vote Early, Vote Often

I learned something last week about the upcoming presidential election that I wanted to share with y'all:

Due to the influx of newly registered voters (woo hoo!) and the anticipated crowds at the polls on election day, voters are strongly encouraged to vote early so as help reduce the length of lines. The thought is that new voters may see ginormous lines and be discouraged to wait to vote.

So if you already know you're going to vote, and even if you're sick of the election talk, go do it now! I voted last week on my birthday and it took about 15 minutes and was fun. Yes I'm a geek. Georgians can vote between now and Oct 31 - locations are here.

For a good voter guide, check out: Urban Independents.
This is the voter guide that my friend Kate put out. She surveyed me and many other folks that I trust deeply to come up with these suggestions.
