The coming election in New York District 23 (NY-23) illustrates in small the problem that many voters have every year.  In this county there are three people running:

  • Bill Owens – Democrat
  • Dede Scozzafava – Republican
  • Doug Hoffman – Independent/Conservative

The interesting part in this race is not only who is choosing to support whom1, but it what this episode illustrates about our electoral system.

What would you do if someone came up to you and asked you to register to vote?  I would assume that if you weren’t registered, you’d take the opportunity to register.

What if you were already registered?  What if you’ve already registered 70 times this year?

In Cuyahoga County, registrants are telling the County Elections board that ACORN workers are begging for registrations—promising smokes and dollar bills.

So, who’s it going to be, Bush or Kerry.  After all of the campaigning, October surprises, debates, and everything it comes down to our votes.  Living in one of the states that appears to be a lock, it would be easy to not vote– and yet it’s our duty to let our voice be heard.  So, get out to the polls and vote!
