Prolific and renounced writer, David Foster Wallace, once said, “If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interests to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay at home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there is no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.”

No matter that side you stand on, it is your given right and duty to voice your opinion through the power of voting. Often times, mid-term elections can have more weight in state representation than presidential elections can. For the love of all things holy, PLEASE get out and vote this November! Even if you’re not registered, you still have time depending on what state you live in. Here are all the voter registration deadlines state by state, courtesy of the New York Times.
