Today is a mid term election here in the US. Lots and lots of very ugly political ads have been tearing up the airwaves.
I don't watch the news or read the newspaper much anymore since it is always depressing and sad. I live in a very "red" state, which means it is conservative and generally votes Republican. I hear lots of derisive things, especially about our current president. One of the things I heard yesterday truly sickened my soul Today is supposed to be a very big day for voters. Yes, from Facebook statuses alone, I don't think many people are going to vote. I ALWAYS vote. It is the least I can do to have my voice heard in this country. Plus, too many women fought too long and hard for me not to vote. It would be shameful for me to do otherwise.
So, this got me thinking.....what do the polls look like in the UK? Do most vote? Are they apathetic like they are here? I read that Australia has compulsory voting. Mari, what about Mexico?
