Have You Missed Your Voter Registration Deadline?

posted on: October 6, 2008


This is NOT the year to get to the polls only to find out that your voter registration has expired, or that you've moved out of your voting district, or that you can't vote under your maiden name, or that it's too late to send in your absentee ballot. With less than 30 days until the election on November 4th, it's time to take your United States citizenship seriously and participate in this thing we call democracy. Here are voter registration deadlines and information links for some key states...

*Check the individual sites to see if there are any terms that allow for late registration*
District of Columbia - http://www.dcboee.org/
Florida - http://election.dos.state.fl.us/
Illinois - http://www.elections.il.gov
Indiana - http://www.state.in.us/sos/elections/
Louisiana - http://www.sos.louisiana.gov/tabid/68/Default.aspx
Michigan - http://michigan.gov/sos/0,1607,7-127-1633---,00.html
Missouri - http://www.sos.mo.gov/elections/
Ohio - http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/voter.aspx
Pennsylvania - http://www.dos.state.pa.us/bcel/site/default.asp

To find out when your state's registration deadline is, visit http://www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/Voting/Register.shtml or google: (your state)+voter+registration.

If you're already registered to vote - GREAT! Now make sure you can actually get to your designated polling location on November 4th before your polls close! If that's not a possibility for you because maybe you commute for work, or maybe you'll be out of town for school, or maybe you're just likely to forget- make sure you get an absentee ballot to send in.

Or... just don't vote... (warning: contains potty-mouth language ;-)

But I wanted to share my iphone pics and have people know its not my real work. =) When are you up to MI next? Your twitters make me stressed for you, you always seem SOOO busy, up super late, and traveling like crazy. I have tons of work on my plate but at least I get to stay in one place. =)
