Today is Election Day in the US, as I'm pretty sure that most of the USAians who follow this journal know. The user icon is a picture of the sign directing people to my own precinct's polling place; I've always liked the juxtaposition of "voting" and "own risk". Yeah, democracy can be dangerous, and voting can be risky; but it's the least-bad method I know of to run a country.
For those of us for whom today is election day - have you voted yet? I have.
