Voting and Voting Registration
It turns out that a link to voter registration on my web page inspired the office of University Relations to put the same link in the electronic newsletter that they sent out last week. That makes me feel good. My friend Bart, who let me know about the above link, points out that "If voting changed anything, it would be illegal." He is advocating electoral reform, because this winner take all system of the electoral college and the two party system does not give us a voice. He says "We vote because it's our civic duty. Plus, if you don't vote, you sacrifice bitching rights for the next four years. Of course, your vote matters more in local races, so I hope you won't neglect our Sept. 18th election."

Good advice.
