I just got to an internet connection finally and saw April's "vote" post. I wanted to make a quick follow-up. In talking to folks back in the states, I've heard more intensity in this race than the past two, which I thought were more divisive. The way I looked at it this go round, any change was change for the better. But I've heard folks say for the first time ever they donated to a political campaign, or they signed up for campaign emails, or they are trying to convince family and friends not to make a mistake and vote for the wrong candidate.
Admittedly, I've missed most of the ads and news, having only listened to debates 2 and 3 on our worldband shortwave radio. So please, help me out, post a comment (or send me an email) and let me know what what is the source of your interest, your intensity, and your activism this year. (I realize I'm pretty close to election day here, but it is my first internet access in over three weeks, sorry. And hopefully none of those qualities will abate dramatically on Wednesday; an informed and involved public makes for the best government.)
And like April said, Go Vote!
