Vox Populi

Three weeks from today - twenty-one short days - is Election Day.  For whomever you vote is your business but vote you should.  

Voting is indeed your right but it is a right that - in order to be exercised - has to be perfected.  How does one perfect it?  Simple.  One registers. 

In New Jersey, the last day to register to vote on Election Day 2016 is...TODAY.  If you have already done so - as Yours truly has - then good for you.  If you have not yet registered, here is a newsflash for you, Slick:  No one is going to do it for you.  

But, first, watch this Schoolhouse Rock video that explains the Electoral College.  It might take your mind off of the fact that none of the options with which we are presented in this year's Presidential election is particularly encouraging...




...and even if it does not, register and vote anyway.
