Well, Iowa is done standing in the corner for their delegates, and my parents in New Hampshire are busy determining who will be left for the rest of America to vote for, so I guess it's time for me to make my sort-of-annual plea for political participation.

I'm doing this because I live in freaking Virginia, which isn't having its primary until February 12th, AFTER Super Tuesday (Feb. 5th). I'm going to have a choice of, like, two people. So those of you with more options better take advantage of it.

The problem with primaries is that there is so much more to know. You have to know which of the dozen or so candidates best represents you, you have to know what the date of your primary is (because we can't just have one standard date for the primaries, noooooooooooo), you have to know whether your state has an open primary (because if you don't, and you're not registered for a party, you don't get to vote), etc.

So this is my plea to get organized, do your research and vote! I don't have to tell you how important the 2008 Presidential election will be, and the primaries will determine not only who will be running then, but what will be discussed in their platforms.

A handy voting guide for those of you unfamiliar with the candidates.
