    In addition, try to watch the debates. This will make you more informed as you go to the voting booth.

    The first debate is tonight, I believe on NBC. (It will probably be on all the channels, as far as I know.)

    OK - my bad. The VP debate is TONIGHT, and it's being broadcast from Cleveland. I guess I got a pre-debate discussion confused with the real thing. Sorry! :oops:

    Also, the next presidential debate is this Friday.

    Watch and learn! VOTE!! [face_flag]

    The entire election process has been really interesting to me this year. It's almost become like a reality TV show, lol.
    With the way things went during the last election it made a lot of people realize every vote counts so everyone on both sides are trying to be careful not to mess up.
    The whole electoral college thing bugs me though. I wish they's split the votes according to what the popular vote in each state is. It seems like that would be more fair. That's just my rant though.

    I agree with you, Erik! This whole process has been fascinating, and I, for one, am glad to see Americans getting "revved up" during this political time. It's really easy to get apathetic about politics, but we are so privledged to have the right to vote, it is a shame to waste it!!

    Ever since I voted in my first presidential election (1988), I have been against the electoral college. When the country was young and there was no national media (i.e., radio & TV), the electoral college made sense, but now, I don't think it's necessary. Let every vote count, I say.

    BTW - the last presidential debate is this Wednesday. It is being broadcast out of Tempe, Arizona, at Arizona State University, Alan's alma mater!!

    VOTE!! [face_flag]
