It's About More that the Next President

So I know a LOT of people are feeling tired and worn out after this entirely too long campaigning season.  I also know that very few people are solidly for either of the presidential candidates, and don't want to have to choose between Clinton and Trump.

But tomorrow is about more than just picking the next president of the United States.  California has 17 propositions on the ballot to decide on matters such as the price of prescription drugs and a hidden tax on pornography (it's supposed to be a law requiring condoms for adult performers, but it got blow out of proportion).  Georgia, where I live, has four amendments that appear on the ballot.  I assume other states also have statewide legislation.

Plus there are federal races for the Senate and House of Representatives.  You may also live someplace with state or county level races.  So you need to go out and vote.

If you worry because you have no idea what else is on the ballot where you live, go to and type in "show me my ballot" and Google will ask you for your street address.  Then it will show you your ballot.  The result looks like this:

Clicking on the "STATE" and "LOCAL" tabs will show you the state and local level elections.

If you have more questions about all the various and asundry elections, you can go to and read more there.

But whatever else you do tomorrow, please vote.  Our democracy only works if we all vote together.
