It's Really THAT Important:

I've been thinking about how important voting is to our citizens and ran across this story about the efforts some people will make while other folks just skip voting altogether. Clearly if these people will make that kind of effort, then I say voting really is THAT important.

From the Associated Press:

"NYC couple travels 9,300 miles from India to vote

Nov 1, 3:05 PM (ET)

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City couple has traveled halfway around the world in the name of civic duty.

Susan Scott-Ker and her husband arrived in New York on Wednesday after flying 9,300 miles to vote in Tuesday's presidential election. They have been working India but decided to return to New York when their absentee ballots failed to arrive. Their trip began in Bangalore with stopovers in New Delhi and Chicago.

It will be their first time voting in a presidential election. The New Zealand-born Scott-Ker and her Morroco-born husband became American citizens a year ago.

They estimate the trip will cost $5,000.""
