    I live in RI and I'm pretty damn unenthused. I don't have any intention of voting today.

    •  sorry to hear that - (5+ / 0-)

      anytime I think I might not vote, I pull up my vision of people being bitten by dogs and firehosed - and I just figure I should be able to get to the polls - whether I'm really enthusiastic or not -

        ...the lies that led up to the invasion of a country that we turned into a crater while also turning dogs on some of the prisoners we created there.  The warrantless wiretapping, etc., etc., etc.

          to vote. Were I disenfranchised, I'd suffer too. But I'm not. I'm just faced with local races I either know nothing about or wish a plague upon both candidates. So, it's like a bunch of people trying to figure out where to eat dinner, and I'm the one saying you guys pick, either is fine with me.

            gov race?  isn't there something to say about who will be the State's chief exec?  I'm not familar with the local issues but I'm thinkin' there must be a few things that will make a difference to you.  Re the right to vote, I can't really say that I'm disenfranchised either but I worry about those who are - and it is entirely possible that it could be me someday.  Not trying to be a pest, but trying to encourage you -  I hope it works but if not now, maybe next time.
