Voters beware! Statistical evidence going back to 1976 shows that on average 24 more people die in car accidents and 800 more people suffered disabling injuries during presidential election voting hours, than during any other day in October or November.
What does that mean for you? It means on Nov. 4 your chance of dying goes up 18 percent if you leave your house to vote!
Researchers say that voters can avoid danger by driving at the speed limit, wearing seat belts, and avoiding alcohol use before heading to the polls. (Just have that Sam Adams with Anderson Cooper while you wait for results.) This study sounds like more reason to vote absentee! Either way, I think democracy is worth the risk.
