Here it comes, my friends.
Some of you are looking at a caucus and some of you are looking at a primary. Make sure you know which one your state is holding, and figure out how it works!
Here in Colorado, we're having a caucus. The caucus takes place at 7pm, but it's suggested that you show up by 6pm. At 7pm a "straw poll" is taken to determine who we'll actually be voting for (kind of weird, huh?). Then we take the "official" vote and assign delegates!
If you're in Colorado, California or NY, it's especially important that you get out to your polling place and SUPPORT BARACK OBAMA. It's important everywhere, but those are some states that are going to be close!
Please take the time to find out ahead of time what you need to do to make your vote count. I've spent the morning doing some research and collecting information to hopefully make things easier for you to find out what you need to know to make your vote count (see links and charts below).
Please feel free to DIGG and pass this post along to friends and family so we can get as many people as possible out there to VOTE FOR OBAMA TOMORROW!!!
ps Don't forget to take a look at the stellar song and video created by Will.I.am of the Black Eyed Peas at the bottom of this post featuring Jesse Dylan, Common, Scarlett Johansson, Tatyana Ali, John Legend, Herbie Hancock, Kate Walsh, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Adam Rodriquez, Kelly Hu, Amber Valetta, Eric Balfour, Aisha Tyler, Nicole Scherzinger and Nick Cannon.
