You Can Actually Vote for Harvey Dent

I Believe in Harvey Dent

I’m not sure why I’m surprised that the creative team behind the viral goodness that is The Dark Knight keep going the extra mile. They’ve proven over and over again that they’re taking the city of Gotham seriously. Almost as seriously as District Attorney candidate Harvey Dent.

The latest email from his campaign staffers directs supporters to register to vote at the Gotham Election Board website. It’s quick and easy – a lot easier than actually registering in “real” elections – and it directs you to an online ballot that lets you decide the fate of propositions A-K and vote on the next mayor, municipal judge and, of course, district attorney.

Gotham Voting

Unfortunately, I have to admit to being uninformed about the issues facing Gotham and the entities running for public office. Who is this Andrew Horwitz? Why is he running? What’s his platform? And why is his only opponent film actor Anthony Garcia?

How do they feel about the flat tax? Marijuana legalization? Immigration reform? Free Tibets?

While it remains unclear as to whether Obama would endorse any of these jokers, it’s nice to see that the civil process is alive and well even in a city so corrupt. It’s been a while since we’ve had a TDK post, and I’m thankful to geek out once again, especially since I just got my screening invite in the e-mail.

I Voted

Go check out the registration website and vote your heart out. You don’t have much time. Election results are being released on June 13th. The Dark Knight is being released soon after on July 18th.
