Election Day has to be one of my favorite holidays in the USA. As a “recovering” political junkie, I’m still going to be interested to see how everything shakes out, but I’ll be waking up nice and refreshed to check out results (instead of how I normally spend Election night back home…)
But more than anything, it’s a celebration of freedom and democracy. I voted from the other side of the world, so you really don’t have an excuse not to walk around the block and punch your ballot. Google Maps will even help you find your way.
Finally, congratulations to my friends and former colleagues on finishing another sprint to Election Day. Just think — only 735 days to Election Day 2012!
PS – If you’re someone who thinks campaigns are dumb, then you have company.
