It’s Super Tuesday Eve. Where’s My Stocking Hung?

The mother of all primary election days is tomorrow — and I plan to hit the voting booth at 7 a.m. I have an idea who will get my vote, but I’m still reading and investigating before I make that final decision.

If you’re not sure who best represents your views, Al Gore’s Internet can help you weed through the hype and narrow it down to the issues most important to you. Try this online quiz or this one.

Yahoo has a cool political dashboard to help you monitor how the primary candidates are faring.

Let your voice be heard.

I'm purple so I can't vote tomorry. I don't even know if I can vote in NY.

I actually need to get my shit together for the big election in November. I don't know how all this works...I'm registered in PA but now I'm living in NY and I'm so lazy that I never bothered looking into it before. I didn't think I'd need to worry about it so soon but time flies.

I will most certainly casting my vote tomorrow. We are one step closer to a better America.

As a proud resident of Cook County, Illinois, I will be doing my part to mobilize the cemetery vote.

Way to go exercising yinz' right to vote. I have no idea when PA votes... I think it's at least 2 months away. I look forward to the day when all states hold their primaries on the same day, so all states have equal voting power!

It turns out that I'm the best person to represent my views. However, even I wouldn't vote for me, so I'm free to stay at home and nap.

This year I'm voting in the lobby of a hospital. One year I voted in someone's garage. Southern CA is very weird with its choice of polling places.

Beckeye - you cannot vote today in NY if you have not registered at your local Board of Elections. They would be very amused if you showed up and told them you were registered in PA, though. Also, you must register soon (not sure when the cut-off is) or you will not be able to vote in November. Now get off your ass and do it!

I couldn't get past the first question on the quiz! They don't want us non zip code holders to take it.

Do the right thing, Beth!

Fascinating. I took both and found similar answers ... even though I think the characterizations of the candidates' views are missing some nuance. Fun anyway!

I took the quizes and both recomended McCain. I think the quiz is based on what Mccain says he will do, and those of us who follow him closely know he rarely does what he says. You can get the same amount of straight talk at a gay bar as you will from McCain. I will never vote for him.

I took the quiz, just as I suspected, there IS NO candidate that matches up with my views, good thing I was too sick to go vote.
Who the heck is Mike Gravel anyway?

you snagged me with "be sure to read this"
It Is This Bad--that was bad. I hope that guy isn't teaching economics somewhere....

No comment just want to keep the chs rally going. RCofCHS, good to hear you're hanging out in gay bars for straight talk. Kind of like going to a Christian school for a science degree. Holly C. Sounds like you have some free time. Just kidding love you both.

You're the one that voted for MHuck, right?

I always come out libertarian on those quizzes. I like being the oddball independent, though.

I predict Mix Tape Friday is about political songs. Am I right? Don't change it just because I was! How about winners and losers? I'd create my own blog, but I really don't have anything to say. I'm only good at making smart alecky remarks.

*sigh* How can I vote when I don't like any of the candidates and the policies they have? I've lost faith. Maybe someone in the blogging wilderness will run that I can support.

are you going to spill and share your vote with us? I voted for hills. no pressure ;)

Also curious to see who you picked! While I will support Hills if she gets the nomination, I'm rooting for Barack for now. Or are you a registered Republican?

Like Moxie, I once lived in SoCal and voted in an old lady's living room in 1992. Good times.
