Election Day

If you are a registered voter and you haven't voted already, please vote today if the polls are still open.

Now for a happy election day tip:  If you type

It's election day!  Please veto today.

The spellchecker will not catch that, because veto is a perfectly good word.  Sometimes such missed words can be even more distracting, as when my student once wrote about 9/11 and the "Twin Towels," or the more common use of defiantly for definitely.  (That's a mistake you definitely don't want to make!)  

Please proofread, and if the work is really critical, find a competent friend to help you proofread.
