It's a fact. Whether you like it or not, whether you did your part or not in the last election, millions of Americans didn't. They stayed home. They didn't pay attention. They didn't seem to  care - until after the votes were counted.

Then they bitched. And moaned. And whined. And complained about the results, on both sides of the left/right divide. And you wished you could shut them all up.

Your wish could come true this year - but it's not gonna happen if you, and your friends, and your neighbors sit at home on Election Day.

Follow this handy guide below, and remember - read a legitimate newspaper or two before you vote!

STEP 1) Make Sure You're Registered To Vote
If you don't know if you're registered to vote, if you don't know if you've got the right documents to vote, if you don't know if the latest voter ID laws affect you? The place to go is
Whether you're in any of the 50 states, the U.S. territories, serving abroad, or living overseas will help you make sure you're ready to vote. will also help you find your polling place, tell you what your polling place voting hours are, send you reminders of when it's time to vote - even help you to vote early!

STEP 2) Make Your Choice
Randi has already said - more than once - what her decision is for President. That doesn't mean YOU have to make the same choice as she does.

In fact, you shouldn't just vote for someone because Randi does.

You should look at the candidate's policies, their past history, and their furture plans, and see which candidates support the kinds of things you believe.

There are several websites to help guide you through this process. One of Team Randi's favorites is the website

You can choose from any of the top six candidates for President on the iSideWith website: Barack Obama (Democratic Party), Mitt Romney (Republican Party), Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party), Jill Stein (Green Party), Virgil Goode (Constitution Party) or Rocky Anderson (Justice Party).

You might not even support who you think - so take the complete quiz, and find out who you side with.

Another website that can help you to be a better educated voter is Project Vote Smart.

There, you can break down your research by issue, candidate, or party. You can also take Project Vote Smart's 'VoteEasy' quiz, another way for you to check which candidate's policies and positions match up with your own.

No matter how much research you've done, no matter how long you've been registered to vote, the fact remains - if you don't get out and vote, all the rest of it is just BS.

We could put a funny video here to try and motivate you, or link to yet another website. The fact is, none of that is going to help.

This part is up to you.

Get your ass out there and vote. Because those who don't vote? Shouldn't complain.
