Whatever your political proclivities, I know you'll do the right thing and make your voice heard on Nov. 7. As for me, this sign (which I nicked from Patagonia's "Don't Forget to Vote" email), pretty much sums it up for this knitter.
I'm passionate about the environment, as in protecting it, not exploiting it. The Arctic Wildlife Refuge, Endangered Species Act, and 15 National Parks are or have been at risk as a result of the current national administration. Information on national environmental issues is available at Vote the Environment.
Interested in more information on these issues? Here are some links that I found informative. The League of Conservation Voters provides a National Environmental Scorecard for elected officials. Project Vote Smart is a citizen's organization developing a Voter's Self-Defense Program to provide unbiased information. Not registered? Online registration is available. There is still time to educate yourself on the issues. But however you feel about them, go out and vote your conscience. Vote for, vote against, JUST VOTE.
Edited to add: I posted more environmental issues and the election links on the I'm A Knitter and I Vote blog.
