Don almost let the Electoral College prevent him from voting

Don wasn't going to vote for president, and other issues, because he thinks it's pointless when the Electoral College has pretty much already determined that Washington state has re-elected Obama.

That was all until Don received an email from James, in the military, who said he was upset to hear that he wasn't voting.

He told Don that part of being an American and honoring James' sacrifices is voting for local and national elections. He went on to tell Don a story about the voters in Iraq in '04. Seventy percent of the population voted and they couldn't hide their marked thumbs from the death squads.

So guess what Don did today?
