I tend to procrastinate voting in the AAR Annual Reader Poll for a few reasons:
- It’s hard when you don’t keep a reading database.
- Lack of said reading database.
- Absence of reading database means I must rely on interim results.
- The deadline must be close enough for me to smell it in order to blast me off my can.
Well, the whiff of smoking deadline is getting stronger – it’s just five days from today.
So, poll procrastinator that I am, it’s time to get off my proverbial butt and get my vote in.
To all my fellow poll procrastinators, I hope you’ll think about joining me. Hey, it’s a holiday weekend and next Tuesday we’ll all be back to work. And, anyway, that’s just too down to the wire – even for a confirmed poll procrastinator like me.
So, vote, everybody! The poll closes on Tuesday, February 17th at midnight, which might seem as if you have a comfortable window. And you sorta do. But Tuesday is American Idol night and trying to vote while also attempting to keep on top of the ever-evolving Simon-Paula dynamic…well, the mind boggles.
I’m going to get my vote in this weekend. Really.
