Audrina Patridge Brushes Up On The Constitution, Reminds Us To Vote

Audrina Patridge hosts the grand opening of the Pussycat Dolls Dollhouse in San Diego, California.

What a good big sistah! Most of y'all wouldn't expect Audrina Patridge to spend her down time flipping through high school textbooks to help tutor a sibling, but according to her Twitter, the "Hills" star has a brand new brainy side! "Helping my little sis w/homework!!...Freshening up on American Government!" she wrote yesterday. Hey, after her time spent in the trenches with the most dramatic circle of friends evah (yes, we're feeling Bostonian today), a few wars on American soil probably seem like no big thing.

'Drina's stated refresher course on politics is a nice deviation from the usual cutesy TwitPic, and it actually reminds us that we have our own set of civil responsibilities come November. All of us could probably use another glance at that checks & balances flow chart that always popped up on U.S. History tests, so get your butts in gear at MTV's Power of 12 site for loads of info on the upcoming election. No matter who you're choosing to put in office, casting your ballot is even more important than, say, getting on the list at Les Deux.
