VOTE for lead host here! [View all]

This discussion thread was locked by yardwork (a host of the Feminists group).

When I was a little kid, my mom always took me with her to vote. The League of Women Voters ran the polls. My mother explained to me that women had not always been allowed to vote, and that the efforts of some very brave women had changed those laws. To this day my mother never misses an election, and neither do I.

We are voting now for a new lead host of the Feminism Group. We have one nomination - Gormy Cuss. Please cast your votes in the poll. I am happy to cast my vote for Gormy Cuss!
