Today, Nov. 7th, 2006: VOTE!!!

  1. To all US nurses--get out there today and vote! We have so many rights and freedoms, and this is just one of them. I don't care what political party you side with, but get out there and vote. To not vote is just plain un-American! God bless and have a great day!

    Good morning. It is 6:42 am here. I will be at the polls about seven. Then doing GOTV.

    I think nurses are some of the best citizens consistantly making the effort to vote.

    Waiting for my polling place to open...small town .
    I registered to vote the day after I turned 18, and over the years I've not voted in just 2 elections....one due to being hospitalized...the other time...disaster at work, couldn't get to the polls before they closed.

    I doesn't matter if you support the GOP, the Dems, an Indy or a Green...cast your vote and make your voice heard.

    Sure will! I'm working 3-11 today and will leave a little bit early in order to stop by the polling place to vote!

    I did! Did you?

    And by the results, it was definately on a LOT of peoples' priorities list this year.

    America has been HEARD. Yay.
    That's all that matters. We have the right and privilege to vote, and our voices were heard.

    I hope everyone stopped to vote! Surprising changes in my area, and I'm sure that's the case for most of y'all too! Too bad, though, that when I went to a meeting at work at 7:00 am, I said that I had just stopped by the polls on my way in and voted. Got 3 or 4 "why bother, our votes don't really count.....". And yes, these were nurses saying this, and one is a NM! To me, this is toooooo scary.

    Sad indeed ! Or when a few raindrops cause people to not come out to vote.

    Other nations would CRAWL to vote.. for this privelege, our RIGHT.

    But I am pleased to see that the voting was higher than it has been in a long, long time this time around. We swallow a lot, but when we've had enough, we do tend to make ourselves heard.

    I was the LAST person to vote in the village. #356. I had to drive like a madman to make it to the polls but I got there. I tried to vote absentee but the county clerk forgot to mail out the ballots.
