Vote 2013

It's the eve of the general election, and much of my work has already been done.  The briefing book has been read and digested.  Election preview stories have been written and edited.

All that's really left to do is show up tomorrow, introduce the preview stories and watch the voters head to the polls.

Outside of a few big races, it's safe to say there isn't a lot of excitement this year.  Looking over the ballot where I vote, there are a lot of uncontested races, and that's sad.

It's also sad to see some alleged pundits, in print, broadcast, and internet, dissing the election.  I will agree that there have been more interesting cycles.  That's no excuse to demean the process.  It only gives more incentive for people to stay home.

Regardless, every election is important.  Do your part tomorrow.
