Most of us realize that freedom isn’t always free, that it often comes at a cost of struggle and strong will.  We would like to thank all of our veterans who have fought so bravely and selflessly to ensure that the legacy of our great nation endures.

BE SURE TO SHARE THIS! As soon as you vote, REBLOG THIS. Whether you voted already (early or absentee) or are voting in person at the polls on November 6, share this image as soon as you fit in the “I Voted” category to show off to your family and friends how much of a genius you are, just to remind them they should do the same and be just as proud. DO IT!

GOOD PEOPLE OF NEW JERSEY! Due to complications caused by Hurricane Sandy, all the counties of New Jersey will be accepting votes for Election 2012 by e-mail/fax! You must request your ballot by 5PM ET tomorrow, November 6, and it must be returned to your county by 8PM ET, the time the polls close.  Click here for a list of instructions and county e-mail/fax information.  SHARE THIS!


(Note: As this is not the standard method of voting in this state, please do your best to vote in the conventional way, as planned.  There might be a greater chance for error.  Displaced voters are also currently allowed to vote at the polling location closest to them if that is different from the location where they are registered.  But as this was an unforeseen circumstance, issues may occur.  Please vote in your proper polling place if possible, but if not, it is ALWAYS better to vote than not vote.  GOOD LUCK!)

NY and (some of) PA extend absentee deadlines!

Check it out, Pennsylvania absentee voters: Gov. Corbett has extended the deadline to return your absentee ballot to Monday, November 5 (received by Monday, that is), but only in counties affected by Hurricane.

Via the Post-Gazette:

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett has extended the deadline for county election offices to receive absentee ballots to Monday, but only in those counties were election offices shut down because of Hurricane Sandy and its remnants.

The extension, which allows ballots to be delivered up until 5 p.m. the night before the general election, also applies to any county whose election office cut its hours because of the storm.

In Allegheny County, the deadline for absentee ballots was extended to Tuesday at 8 p.m. by a court decision earlier this week.

Absentee ballots may be mailed or delivered in person.

Even better news for New Yorkers!

Via DemocratAndChronicle.com:

In an emergency meeting late Wednesday, the board voted to ease the original Oct. 30 deadline statewide for faxed or mailed applications, according to a news release. Voters may apply for an absentee ballot in person at local boards of elections through Nov. 5. The board also extended the deadline to submit the ballots in person by six days, from Nov. 13 to Nov. 19. Ballots returned by mail still must be postmarked by Monday, Nov. 5, but have until Nov. 19 to reach the local board.

Oy, Pennsylvania!  They have the earliest absentee ballot deadline in the nation.  Why?  Who knows?!  But it’s tomorrow, so, if you are voting absentee in PA, STOP WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING AND SEND YOUR BALLOT IN IMMEDIATELY!
PS: We were so confused by the conflicting information here and here that we had to call PA and confirm.  Yes, regular civilian absentee ballots MUST BE RECEIVED tomorrow (Nov 2) to count.  Only overseas and military ballots will be counted if they are received on election day.
PENNSYLVANIAAAAAAAAAA!!!
