  • Time to do your duty in the office of citizen

    Election Day 2011 is just around the corner. If you are registered to vote, please go to the polls Nov. 8 to give your input about who should lead our state for the next four years.

    I could write about the latest opinion polls, but frankly, I've never really liked the horse-race aspect of election coverage. Polls have been used to justify excluding (and even more rarely, including) candidates in debates, which I think is a poor criteria (but that's another column).
