Are You Voting this Tuesday?

Just wondering how many Americans here will be voting in this Tuesday's elections. I hope everyone here who is old enough, will be going to vote on Tuesday.

There is a competitive race in my congressional district in Pennsylvania between Gekas and Holden. Pennsylvania lost two congressional seats because the population of the Pennsylvania decreased on the 2000 Census. Gekas and Holden are both incumbents. They are running against each other because their congressional districts were combined into one district. I've always had Gekas as my representive in Congress for well over a decade. But because my district has been combined with Holdens district, someone from outside the area could now become our representitive. I support Gekas over Holden of course, but surprisingly, Gekas is running behind Holden in the polls. I'm getting all of my friends who would not normaly vote in a mid-term election to go and vote for Gekas on Tuesday. Actually, I still have to make sure that I'm in Gekas's district, because after the redistricting earlier this year, the new district only had 60% of the old area's of the Gekas's previous district while being combined with the 40% of Holdens former district.

nbcrusader,

Why did you need to vote by absentee?

What!? No "Hell, yes until they pry my ballot-puncher out of my cold, dead fingers!" option?



I've only missed voting in one election in 22 years. It was a sanitation district election. I'm still embarassed about missing it.

Both, in addition to individual State and Local elections. Depending on which State and voting district your in, there are a lot of positions up for election this Tuesday.

I still don't know who to vote for for Governor in New Mexico. It's very depressing. It's an important election for us. I just don't know if I can bring myself to vote for the Democrat candidate, Bill Richardson (I haven't gotten over his stinky role in the whole Wen Ho Lee thing for starters) but if I vote for the Green Party candidate it will be a throw away vote.

I wanted to go ahead and warn all of you:

I am voting for the Democratic candidates in 2 of the offices up for election, and I am voting for the Republican candidates in all of the other offices.

I know the Democratic candidate for State Treasurer and I am voting for him.

And the Republican candidate for Public Service Commission is George Wallace, Jr. I do not vote for Wallaces. (He has been a life-long Democrat but recently switched because he decided it would be easier to win as a Republican).

The Republican candidates are the better choices for me in all of the other races.

Thanks.

Strictly as a matter of convenience. No matter what happens during my day on Tuesday, I know I got my vote in.

Cool! I wonder if any of the "non-voters" could tell us why they won't be voting Tuesday. Is it a schedual conflict or time conflict on that day, or general skepticism about politics?

i already voted in my home state of minnesota, though i may have to re-vote with another absentee ballot cos of the tragedy that happened ( )


*crosses fingers that penny gets a lot of votes on tuesday*





i'll be campaigning hard for the south dakota democrats on tuesday, as the difference in the candidates (for governor, senator, AND congress) are all so close they are decided by the margin of error.


so technically no, i will not be voting come tuesday, though i have voted.

I already voted by absentee ballot myself. This is because I chose to remain registered in Michigan for now, as I felt that I wasn't familiar enough with Massachusetts politics to make an educated vote.

Plus, I find that the Michigan elections are far more interesting to me...lol.

Have To

I Vote Early...and Often HEHE!!!!

Seriously, I feel if I am going to teach kids to be responsible citizens, I should do so myself.

Here IN MASS

We have a Governor, Senator, State Rep, State Treasurer, and The hot Ballot Question #2 to vote on.

Governor's Race....Undecided....Only because I want to vote Democrat but the candidate just plain irks me. The Republicans have butchered the DOE here in MA for 12 years now. I feel the only way to change it is to get a Democrat in office.

Senate Democrat....Kerry has no one opposing him really.

State Rep Democrat....The Republican Candidate plays dirty.

State Treasurer Republican....This guy received endorsements from the ultra-liberal Boston Globe and the Conservative Boston Herald. He is truly a great all around candidate.

Question #2....I do not like the law suit language against teachers. It troubles me. Still thinking on it.



Peace to all......
