What Are You Doing On The Computer?


It is our right, duty and privilege as citizens of the United States of America
to VOTE today.

No matter your political beliefs, regardless of political party,  all Americans must exercise their right to VOTE.

People, many displaced by Superstorm Sandy, line up to vote  Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, in Burlington, N.J., at a Mobile Voting Precinct. Many victims displaced by the storm are taking advantage of offers to vote early. Photo: Mel Evans / AP

If the folks in the photo can do it, so can you!  
No excuses!

So, turn off your computer,
walk out your door,

(if you have already voted, thank you!)


  1. HEY LADY! The first thing I did this morning was vote. Probably before you did, because I live on the East Coast.So there!

    Yes, I encourage everyone to vote. Our ancestors gave up their lives so we could have this privilege.

    God bless America!

    1. Allison - you're so funny! We always joke that the election results are sometimes called before our polls even close up here!

      God bless America, indeed!

  2. I agree! It is a privilege and duty that all citizens need to honor. Men and women have died for our freedom and liberty!

    And I was happy to vote early this year...

    1. It was so fun to go to the polls this morning with Miguel for his first presidential election!

  3. I love that Alaska as one of the highest amount of voters.
    I voted two weeks ago. :) We don't have a polling place anymore.
    Have a wonderful week.


I love to receive comments - please tell me what you think!
