I have the perfect solution for the long wait Americans might have to endure while voting on Tuesday. How about buying a book, uploading it to your e-reader, iPad, or phone, and settling in to read about two guys falling in love with each other. Oh, and I have the perfect book for you.
But, before I get to that, I should make sure you know where to go to vote. Google has some nice tools for you to use. Either do a search for “Where do I vote?” or go here to not only input your address, but also see a sample of what will be on your ballot. If you’re not sure if you’re registered, the best place to check is your Secretary of State’s website. There you can also find what you will need to bring as proof of your identity and address. Some states, like my own Minnesota, still offer same day voter registration, but I know we are in the minority, so check the SOS site for your state.
In Minnesota this year, we are voting on whether or not to write discrimination into our state constitution, so I’m voting a gigantic NO to limit marriage. I think all couples who want to marry should have equal rights. If you live in MN, ME, MD, or WA, please vote to support same-sex marriage. That means a Yes vote in ME, MD, and WA and a No vote in MN. Here’s a little help for you, in case you want more info.
So, now for that reading material which could help make a long day in lines a little more pleasant. It’s my book that you see plastered everywhere you see the name, Posy Roberts. Haha. Yes, Fall Into You was actually released today, just in time to help you deal with the stress of the election. You can read about rim jobs and blow jobs while the blow hards on television work the spin room and report about fury-inducing voter suppression occurring all over this great land. But rather than getting angry and pissed, you can get hot and bothered when Thomas entices Simon back to his hotel room in chapter 1 and even gets him to strip down in chapter 2.
For those of you who were coming of age like I was in 1989, this book will probably take you back to what seemed like an easier time. It wasn’t an easier time, but we didn’t have news flashing in our faces everyday. The Berlin wall came down and we all cheered. HIV scared the living daylights out of us. Some of us (raises hand) even resisted Grunge with all our might because we didn’t want to leave the fun of the 80s behind. You can go back and experience those things all over again with Simon Phillips and Thomas Schultz.
Let them make your voting experience a pleasure. 😉
