Eric Frederic Speaks Out To Voters

Posted by: Jonathan Lally (10/06/08)
Eric Frederic of Facing New York / Wallpaper has issued us the following statement, encouraging readers to register for the vote. Don't forget, today may be the deadline of registration depending on which state you reside in.
Eric Frederic & Election 2008This is Eric from Facing New York. I'm not here to preach or tell you who to vote for. You know in your heart who is the right choice this November. Just wanted to give an important message to those of you who live in Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Virginia. Today is the deadline for you to register to vote. That's right, Ohio, Florida, & Pennsylvania specifically, I'm talking to you. If you're 18 or older and feeling apathetic or untrusting of our government, this is your day to start changing that. Register, and spend the next month researching and deciding how to cast your vote. This is the most important election of our lives, and for many of you, your first. If a financial system on the verge of collapse and diplomatic ties at their worst in years aren't enough for you to get involved, I don't know what is. Save lives, vote.

-Eric Frederic, Facing New York & Wallpaper

wow.

First of all, quote him word for word, don't put words in his mouth. Secondly, he meant "preach" as in tell you who to vote for. Read it with a little sense and you could have figured that out. He's making a good point here, don't try to dilute that.

p.s. this makes 3 people so far that are giving the new FNY as many thumbs and toes up as humanly possible.

Ok dumb question coming...I registered and voted at college in ohio in 04. I now live back home (still in ohio).
Am I still registered and able to vote and mail in an absentee vote to where I voted in 04 or can I just send in a change of address? If I have register again at home I need to do that tonight.

Locale AM and other East Bay bands own a big part of my heart.
