Thanks for leaving us alone to vote

leave a comment »

We owe the world a big thank you. They left us alone to vote. There were no attacks on American soil, and as far as I know, there were no attacks on embassies or consulates. The world watched, but didn’t interfere. Thank you — all of you.

I had wondered if we would need UN poll watchers. I had been holding my breath that AlQaeda would attack or do something to push us in one direction or another. I had heard rumors that we might have troops in our streets to keep the peace. I was afraid someone somewhere would do something to draw our attention from our own election. And they did not.

Thank you. I hope we can return the favor.

Vote! It’s important

leave a comment »

I’m sitting at the League of Women Voters here in San Francisco – answering phones about voter registration, irregularities at the polls, offering up phone numbers to others who can help.

1.866.687. 8683 (866 OUR VOTE) is the hot line for voter irregularities provided by The Election Protection Coalition.

The Huffington Post has a  whole section just for voting problems.

Later today I’ll be glued to the TV and my monitor and my crackberry – getting the latest info from everywhere. How exciting! How scary! How hopeful!

Go vote. It’s important.
