Reason #8 to GOTV: Imagining a Romney Supreme Court is actually terrifying


These nine people hold a lot of power. The next president will likely get to appoint one or more new judges–which will shape the legal landscape for generations to come. Under Romney, it wouldn’t be pretty.

Reason #5 to GOTV: Joe Biden is a national treasure


He’s been a long-time women’s rights advocate and he recently said that trans discrimination is the “civil rights issue of our time.” (Plus, he isn’t afraid to straight-up laugh at the Romney/Ryan platform.)

Reason #4 to GOTV: You like your no-copay birth control

Ryan says it would “be gone” on “day one.” (I don’t know about you, but he’s getting this IUD outta me over my dead body.) Incidentally, the contraception mandate alone should probably earn Obama a “pro-life prize” for preventing so many abortions.

Reason #3 to GOTV: Obama has been pretty good to us

His first term hasn’t been perfect, but there’s no doubt that President Obama has gotten some important things done.

Romney, on the other hand, sounds like he’s full of crap.

Happy Election Day! Here are some reasons to #GOTV

Honestly, I feel a little bit like this girl:

I doubt we have to remind any Feministing readers that there’s a lot in stake in this election. But as someone who sorta hates electoral politics, always feels burnt-out at this point in the season, and doesn’t exactly get a boner from having to actually go to my polling place to vote (how old-fashioned does that seem?), I think it never hurts to offer some final reminders of why it is important to actually do the damn thing today. So, throughout the day, we’ll be bringing you some reasons to, as Sugar says, “vote like a motherfucker.
