It’s a weird, offbeat year to vote. You may or–just as likely–may not have heard that there’s an election coming up on November 7th and that several local offices will be contested. I’ve been talking about the election ad nauseam for a few weeks now (okay, months). I’ve been posting and proselytizing about my own favorite current candidate on social media even more than I’ve been posting about my own kid (really).
What I’m trying to say is: I’m sorry. Even I am getting kind of sick of my election participation proselytizing. So I’ve been trying to figure out more creative (read: less annoying) ways to remind my friends, family, and acquaintances about our civic responsibility. I’m sharing these suggestions just in case you too have a strong predilection for freedom and also see voting as the string that holds this whole sweater together.
