Want to Change the World? Vote.


This year's midterm election has been hard to ignore, which is a good thing since some major initiatives as well as several terrifying candidates have made their way onto the ballot.

So, you're voting, right?


Before making your way to the ballot box, do a little bit of research about the candidates and the initiative measures, amendments, or propositions whose fate resides in your hands.

In addition to state and county voting guides, nonprofit organizations like the Sierra Club also distribute regional voting guides. If you're lucky enough to have a local newspaper you trust, like The Stranger in Seattle, consult them too.

There are close races all over the country this year, and many will decide policy for years to come. On Tuesday, November 2nd, make sure you, your family, your real friends, your Facebook friends, and even your acquaintances VOTE. Please.
