By now, especially if you’re reading MY blog, you should be a registered voter so you can have your say on November 4th about whether this country continues to be governed on fear and division or whether we move into hope and inclusion. It’s up to you, but you have to be registered to vote first!
Many states, but not all require people to be registered at least 30 days before an election. So in Alaska and many other states, this means Sunday, October 5th. Take no chances. Register today. And I mean that no matter who you are supporting for President.
Two sites where you can learn your registration deadlines and register to vote are:
“Declare Yourself is a national nonpartisan, nonprofit campaign to empower and encourage every eligible 18-year-old in America to register and vote in the presidential primaries and 2008 presidential election. Using the power of strategic media partnerships, celebrity spokespeople, the sports arena, and most importantly, mobile and Internet technology, Declare Yourself’s campaign blankets the landscape of popular culture, as well as universities and high schools, with a simple, clear message: REGISTER and VOTE!”
Although aimed at 18 year olds, they’ll take anybody.
If you like your registration Democrat flavored, there is:
Vote for Change
http://www.voteforchange.com/, which is run by the Obama campaign. I like this site because in addition to registering, you can also verify whether you’re currently registered. This comes in handy if you haven’t voted for awhile. This site will also register anybody, not just Democrats.
However way you do it. Register. Then vote!
