People who pick up litter.
People who let others merge onto the highway.
People who wear seatbelts, all the time.
Who votes in low-turnout elections, like the one Kentucky will have tomorrow?
People who feel that being a dutiful member of the community is part of who they are.
Voting is not really about what's in it for you.
Voting is not really about whether your vote will make a difference.
Voting is part of being a member of a democratic community.

As for me and Mrs. G., we will be at the polls early. As usual. I hope you will be too.
