Leah the Librarian Votes.

Hello fair readers,

Today is a grand and beautiful day.  It is Election Day.

And in the spirit of Democracy and full disclosure, here is exactly how I voted in Chicago, IL.

Proposed Call for a Constitutional Convention: No

President and Vice President of the United States: Barack Obama and Joe Biden

United States Senator: Richard J. Durbin

U.S. Representative, 5th District: Rahm Emanuel

State Senator, 6th District: John J. Cullerton

State Representative, 11th District: John A. Fritchey

Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Commissioners: Frank Avila (Dem), Kathleen Therese Meany (Dem), Nadine Bopp (Green)

State’s Attorney: Anita Alvarez (Dem)

Clerk of the Circuit Court: Dorothy A. Brown (Dem)

Recorder of Deeds: Eugene “Gene” Moore

OK so I’m not listing out all the judges who are running unopposed because that just seems silly and there’s a lot of them.  I will however list the Judges I voted for in the Circuit Court:

Thomas E. Flanagan, Themis N. Kamazis, James Patrick Flannery, Sebastian Thomas Patti, Michelle Francene Lowrance, Evelyn B. Clay, John J. Fleming, Kathleen G. Kennedy, Barbara A. McDonald, James L. Rhodes, David P. Sterba, Kenneth J. Wadas, Gregory Joseph Wojkowski, Robert E. Gordon, Lewis Noxon, Thomas J. Lipscomb.

And finally, “Shall the Illinois Constitution be amended to establish a recall process for the office of Governor and other statewide elected official?”


Welp, get out and vote fair readers!  And be a good American. 🙂


Patriotism (Librarian Style)

Hello fair readers!

As I’m sure many of you know another major election is upon us.

And while many of you know who I prefer….


The most important thing right now is that everyone is registered to vote!

So while I pretty much depise MTV, the best thing they have ever done is to create Rock the Vote.

Go to:


you can register to vote easily and online.  You just have to print this little sheet out and mail it.  How easy is that?  Seriously.

Don’t be lame.

Register to vote.

And then after registering, do the world a favor and vote for a candidate that’s actually worth a damn.

Oh yeah, you know it. 🙂

Have a lovely Sunday fair readers!
