Millions of people are planning not to cast their ballots on election day. Jeff Inglis, managing editor of the Portland Phoenix, says that convincing your friends to vote may be more of a civic triumph than going to the polls yourself.

Inglis discusses his article "Who's your Ricky?: Nagging Your Friends To Vote."
