At this stage in the presidential election, nothing is more important than GOTV - "get out the vote." The rallies, the conventions, the debates, the onslaught of negative TV ads, and the cheer and smear campaigns, all those come in a distant second.
We can sit them all out.
Nov. 8, however, is the calendar event that matters. As the North Carolina NAACP and faith leaders in that state put it, on Election Day, "It's our time, it's our vote."
Besides, there is not much more to learn about the presumptive Democratic and Republican nominees, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, respectively - at least not enough to make many voters switch sides. The candidates have told us much of what we need to know. One unopened door is the criminal probe involving Clinton's handling of classified information. Speaking for myself, Trump, through word and deed, has shown what he is.
