Wizard Rock the Vote!

Today is Election Day in the US, and we'd like to remind you, along with The HP Alliance, to Wizard Rock the VOTE! Get out there and vote, no matter who you are voting for. It matters in and outside America, and it will affect the course of the world.

Here are a couple of links to help:

Google makes it easy to find your polling place and registration information at maps.google.com/vote.

If you aren't registered, but live in Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, or Wisconsin, you can register at the polls on the day of the election (TODAY): click here for more on polling places and other voting info.

You can research the ballot initiatives going on in your state here.

Remember that your vote is important and don't let anyone get between you and your choice!

Today is historical and this campaign election and its turnout unprecedented.
Kudos to you for making everyone aware of voting importance.

I VOTED! Yea to everyone who voted — no matter who you voted for. It’s as important in the Muggle world as it is in the Wizarding World to exercise your right to vote!

Canada’s last election had its lowest voter turnout in history. Where were the posts urging us?

It’s sad to see all the “but this isn’t about Potter” comments here. Voting, regardless of who you’re voting for and what country you’re voting in, shapes a large part of your future. (Think about the past 7+ years, for example. Try telling anyone you haven’t been affected by the results of voting, or lack thereof.) Big giant hugs to those of you who have voted, are voting today, or are supportive of Leaky’s reminder to vote. I’m heading out to vote in about an hour. Support your candidate of choice! Adios!

C’mon now Britt! You can’t expect leaky to release “go vote” posts for every single country, can you? They are doing it for this election because they are all from the USA and this is an american website. It is simple as that…

How about no – how about if you WANT to vote you go vote. If you don’t know what the heck you’re voting for and know nothing more than what some guy/girl told you about said candidate you do the country a favor and stay home. The founding fathers made a bad assumption that people would stay involved and knowledgeable and that’s just not even remotely true in this day in age. An ignorant vote undermines the entire underpinning of Democracy and always has…

Voting has nothing to do with Harry Potter stuff, why is it on this website?

I’m sorry, but I don’t think I’ll visit until this is off the front page. I read the books and watch the movies to get away from America.

Every other website on the Internet is focused on this election, why does this one need to join in? When the Harry Potter franchise becomes relevant to the US elections, I’ll stop whining and ‘not read it’.

Leaky is not focused on this election, Britt! It was only one post! One post to remember that voting is important… that’s it.

Don’t you guys think that it is exagerated to say things like “I wont visit until this post is off the front page”?
Which… by the way… means that you would have to keep visiting the site anyway just to check whether the post is off the front page, littleweasleygirl. =p
