Election Day

It’s Tuesday, November 8, 2016.  Election Day.  Today, we elect a new president, some senators, all the members of the House of Representatives, and various state and local officials.

Regardless of your political affiliation, I hope you get out there and exercise your fundamental civic right.  People fought and died for this right, so make sure you’ve carefully considered the candidates and ballot measures before you.

No matter how the election turns out, we’ve still got to live with each other tomorrow and the day after that.  Don’t let your political position interfere with your ability to maintain a relationship with your loved ones or your coworkers or such.  I have lots of friends and family with whom I disagree, politically, but I still love ’em.

(Even if they’re wrong)
