I'm afraid I will be unable to vote this year. Not that the selection is that compelling, but it is a real duty. Illinois does not offer the possibility of requesting an absentee ballot by e-mail, and there are no downloadable request form on the Internet for this, either. I was thinking I could use Fedex to get an absentee ballot in, but I haven't even gotten the ballot request, never mind the ballot, and tomorrow is the deadline for them to receive my request.
That being the case, I ask all of my readers to get out there and vote!
