I don’t make it a habit of getting political here, but if you’re in the U.S. and you aren’t registered to vote, it takes five minutes to fill out the form and mail it in. Not sure if you’re registered? Check here.
I don’t care who you vote for*, but registering and voting are all part of the “being a productive adult member of society” thing, and if you just haven’t gotten around to it, or aren’t sure how, well, here you go.
Anecdote time! The first presidential election I voted in (Clinton/Dole), I almost turned around and left because I was so freaked out and anxious because I didn’t know where to go once I was in the building, what I had to do, or what would happen. A woman about to go inside knocked on my car window, said, “First time? Follow me,” and I did, and it was easy and fine and I’ve voted in every election since. Don’t let your anxiety keep you from doing important things you’ve never done before.
