I did my patriotic duty and made it out to the polling place one street over (and about 0.3 mile walk away).
Tomorrow I’m going to get certified for reduced fare ID and hope to have time to get the ID. Then I get to ride everywhere DART can take me for $2.50 all day. This is a major improvement over my current situation where I can ride for 2 hours on that same $2.50 only on certain parts of the system. Without the reduced fare ID riding to Ft. Worth or Denton costs $10.
Bad thing about this is I will be on the road at least 4 hours, probably closer to 5 hours. I will either have to skip lunch or eat something on the road. And I’m about to lose access to my laptop because cat, so this will have to do tonight.
And if you already have (like I did) then thank you.
Seriously, this election is too important to miss. And not just for the presidential election, there are some serious goombahs we need to clear out of the House and Senate (looking at YOU AZ). And remember bike infrastructure is voted on by local officials, vote for the least-bad among them as well.

The deadline to register to vote is bearing down in many states, have you registered to vote? Remember that many transportation projects depend on local elected officials’ support, and those elections are decided by just a few votes. I’m not going to tell you who to vote for because I really don’t know for most elections, you will have to educate yourself through your local media and social media.
Just get registered, and get out there to vote like your life depended on it, because it very well might.
