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!

Ok, I’m done being dramatic.
