Jackson leaves a polling station without voting November 4, 2008 in Galveston, Texas. Damage from Hurricane Ike forced the district to consolidate polling places and Jackson was supposed to vote at a different location but said he was too busy recovering from Hurricane Ike and caring for his mother so he would not cast a ballot this year. After nearly two years of presidential campaigning, U.S. citizens go to the polls today to vote in the election between Democratic presidential nominee U.S. Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) and Republican nominee U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). (Photo by Dave Einsel/Getty Images)
