If you read this blog you care about philanthropy. If you care about philanthropy you care about your community. You take action on your belief that supporting other people is an important and worthwhile goal. In that context it seems inconsistent to not vote. So in the spirit of someone who encourages people to use effective tactics to further their social goals, I encourage you to take the time today to go out and vote.
Oh, in case you need some motivation, professors from the University of Houston, UC Berkeley and Columbia University recently estimated that a single vote is the philanthropic equivalent of a $40,000 donation! (hat tip: Lucy Bernholz)
