Heads up to my readers in Texas: If you are eligible and you have not registered to vote yet, time is running out. The deadline is this coming Tuesday, October 11. If you’re not in Texas, your deadline may be even a couple of days sooner than that, though in most states it’s either the same day or a bit later, and in other states you may be able to register in person on election day. (If you’re in North Dakota, lucky you; it’s the one state that does not have voter registration.) See this page on usa.gov for more information.
This is a very important election on the national level; however, please do not neglect the state and local candidates, regardless of where you are voting. Remember, our government works best when as many people as possible cast an informed vote.
