a modest proposal:

Halloween and election day should be combined. Voting would be more fun in costume, plus the ancient decades-retired poll workers are already rockin' that living dead thing. There are always disappointments when the results of the election come in (some years worse than others, but no one is ever 100% happy with all the winners), and isn't it easier to face disappoinment in your princess/pirate/ ninja costume? Also, costumed adults would be a good visual reminder that it's election day; now all we have is those miniscule tasteful "I voted today" lapel stickers that you'll never notice like you would a Frankenstein serving you coffee in the morning drive-thru.

Who's with me?
