"Don't Vote"

Tonight I’m driving up to my parents’ house for dinner, and I see this billboard just north of downtown Minneapolis on Interstate 94. Had I not been in a rush to get up there for dinner I would have stopped and grabbed a picture of this billboard and inspected it for some kind of “Paid for…” notice. It read, in a very patriotic red, white and blue:

Don’t Vote

A particularly good billboard. The largest voting block in the nation remains the portion of the electorate which doesn’t vote. Maybe some reverse psychology will work on them. Certainly all the signs reminding/asking them to vote don’t do the trick!
