Florida Art Director Can’t Decide Who to Vote For, Solicits Twitter Help

Hey, after the 2000 election calamity and being a native Floridian myself, this is not the worst idea we’ve seen. Folks, meet Jordan Rich, a Miami-based art director–sorry, “art director for hire”–who’s served as an art directing intern at the likes of Jung von Matt and Ogilvy. Anyhow, Rich is in a bit of a pickle as he can’t decide who to vote for this year. So, in this day and age, where else does one turn to for guidance? You guessed it: Twitter. We’re not sure this is the best way of proving one’s not taking their vote lightly, but the indecisive chap is turning to tweeters worldwide anyhow to hit up @voteforjordan, tell him why he should vote one way or the other and then hashtag it #jordanvoteromney or #jordanvoteobama.

Surprisingly, Rich’s fairly ridiculous effort has received a fair amount of feedback (hey, it got our attention). Anyhow, the day before the election, Rich will check his absentee ballot whichever way social media tells him to. For all those who fought for “one man, one vote” over the years, our sincere apologies.
