If you're looking for a reason (besides plain laziness or rampant apathy) for not voting, you can't use "I didn't have time, I had to get to work," because in California and 30 other states, your employer must provide time for you to go to the polls.

That means when the boss tells you that you can't have that long lunch to go wait in line for 2 1/2 hours to cast your vote, you can tell him, "Hey, Bush lackey, I can too have 2 1/2 hours off--or 3 or 4 or whatever it takes, you butt-kissing environment-hating Republican schmo!"

That's assuming he or she is a butt-kissing environment-hating Republican schmo. He or she may be a cry-baby Liberal Democrat America-hater, for all I know.

Asking for paid leave is stretching it a bit, however. Here in California, you would have had to do that last Friday.
