Midterm elections are tomorrow and Democracy Matters* wants YOU to
get off your ass and vote Rock the Vote.
Seriously, if you don’t vote, don’t complain. Everybody loves to complain—and when it comes to politics, everyone has something to complain about—so just vote.
Voting takes place tomorrow (11/4) from 6 am to 9 pm in the ICC.
[Full Disclosure: These are the polling times for the city of Saratoga Springs and may not reflect the actual polling times at Skidmore, which are not posted anywhere as far as I can tell. Please don’t blame me if you show up at 6 am and the ICC is locked.]

* Does campaign finance reform keep you up a night? Do the words Citizens United and McCutcheon make your blood boil and steam come out your ears? Do you consider Bernie Sanders to be the Second Coming? If you said yes to any of these, check out a Democracy Matters meeting, Tuesdays at 8 pm in Bolton 280!
