Today is a historic day for Wisconsin, and the country: the first recall election in the post-Citizens United world. I will have commentary about the significance of the election itself tomorrow, but for today I just want to say: GET OUT AND VOTE! Participate in this amazing exercise of democracy, no matter what side of the fence you are on.
If you’re liberal like myself, and prefer a Governor who isn’t under criminal investigation for corruption, please vote for Tom Barrett for Governor today, Wisconsinites. (and for Mahlon Mitchell for Lt. Governor)
Polls are open from now until 8:00 p.m. If you’re not registered yet, you can register to vote at your polling place.
and then, pass it on by:
1. posting this same message to your Facebok wall;
2. tagging your other Wisconsin friends on Facebook;
3. bringing at least one person who didn’t vote in 2010 with you to the polls.
