That’s right, tomorrow is Election Day here in the States. If you’re registered to vote, don’t forget to get out there before the polls close. If you’re not. Why not? It’s easy. (Also, using the excuse you don’t register because you don’t want to get picked for jury duty is invalid. Many states can also go to other sources–such as the department of motor vehicles–to assemble jury pools.)
