Election Night Celebration for Missoula County Democrats

On Tuesday night, Election Night, Missoula County Democrats will be celebrating in a smoke free environment at the Elks Club 112 N. Pattee St.

After all of the “Get Out The Vote” calls have been made and all of the doors have been knocked, everyone is invited to join with other Democrats as the Missoula County Democrats celebrate the end of the election and watch the results come in.

We will be getting together at the Elks after 8:00 pm in a smoke free environment to celebrate. The bar will be offering both drink and beer specials to help us celebrate. And celebrate we should! Hundreds of people, if not thousands, in Missoula County have been volunteering and working hard to bring us change at the local, state, and national levels. We should be having lots to celebrate. Bring your friends, other volunteers, your whole campaign staff and anybody else who would like to join in the excitement.

Pete, yesterday I ran into two of those mythical creatures: undecided voters. I know! I didn’t think they really existed either. How could anyone be that confused?

The first was honestly embarassed. He knew this indecision wasn’t right. He asked when I voted and whom I voted for, nodded when I answered, and said he was definitely going to make up his mind before going to the polls today. The second? Well, she’s bagging the whole election. After annoucing that she’s always voted Democratic but thought it was a “drop in the bucket in Montana”, she said the debates didn’t help. She liked McCain’s performance. However, rather than cast a ballot for the Republican, she’s not going to bother to vote at all.

That is sad. Sad.

Vote. It doesn’t matter for whom. Obviously, I’d prefer people vote for Obama, but let’s face it: no matter what Gary Marbut says about gun ownership, voting is the most important right we have. It’s ridiculous to waste it because of temporary indecision and confusion.

Jump in with both feet. Vote.
