Reminder: Register to Vote!

Excuse me while I (rightfully) get dramatic:

For many states, the deadline for registering to vote in the 11/4/08 election, to determine the next president, is rapidly approaching. Registering to vote only takes a few minutes and it is a decision that you will not regret. If past elections have taught us anything, every vote counts- or at least it should. If you care about this country (or the world) and the direction that we’re headed in, you need to register.  FAILING TO REGISTER and/or NOT VOTING  is a decision that may have epic consequences. So do your part and try to make your voice heard. Have a say in the fate of the world.

Sites like Just Vote and Rock The Vote are nonpartisan websites that will give you all the information that you need. If you have questions about absentee ballots, voting overseas, or you just aren’t sure if you’re registered- FIND OUT THE ANSWERS, NOW!

Time is running out in many states!

Saturday, October 4th Registration Deadlines:

Alaska, Nevada, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Washington.

Monday, October 6th Registration Deadlines:

Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia.

Ok, I’m done being dramatic.

    Great post!Voting is soooooo very important! Like, I don’t know how to stress that enough to folks, lol. A friend of mine told me she wasn’t voting and I had to resist the urge to grab her by her collar and shake some sense into her! As young people, this election is OURS. We cannot afford be complacent or apathetic!
