I voted yesterday in Knox County, Maine, by absentee ballot. It's easy, it's painless, and if you're in a state where you can vote early, please do. I also found that no one was running for Probate Judge, so I wrote myself in. That was fun, too.

Look. It's a lot of fun to vote on election day, but let's face it: things can come up. I suspect that anyone reading this has made up their mind about whom to vote for in national and State/Commonwealth elections so voting early should be easy-peasy. However, don't forget your local elections and bond issues, and ballot initiatives. Look them up. Down-ticket matters!

I'm largely waiting out this election cycle when it comes to Daily Kos, because I am a very bad cheerleader think it's more important to be doing things in my community. However, I did want to say get out and vote, and do it early-- in fact, do it now. You've voted? Great! Help folks with mobility or transportation issues get out to the polls.

Get out in the field with us. Let's get out the vote.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
