In 24 hours we will have the opportunity to change our country for the better when we exercise our right to vote. A right that our parents and grandparents fought so very hard for us to have. For the first time since I've been able to vote I don't feel like I'm having to choose between the lesser of two evils. Now is not the time to be discouraged by long lines or the notion that your vote won't count. Get out and vote and be apart of the change we all need. And if you live in California or know someone who does please stress the importance of voting no on Prop 8.
