There are some really important elections coming up this season. I live in a place where my vote barely matters. My local elections all go Democrat (how I want them to go, mostly), and my statewide elections go mostly Republican (how I don't want them to go!).

I compensate for this by making a point to donate to important elections in other places. This, to me, can be more effective than voting itself. I hate the way campaigns are basically a money contest, but still. These elections can indirectly or directly affect me in the future (which is why the "why don't you just move away from your red state?" argument annoys me).

So, do you have any candidates in your area you'd like to sell to GT?
