Got the Vote?

Are you registered to vote? In some parts of the country, times’s running out! While a few states (yea, Wisconsin!) allow same-day registration at the polls on election day, most states have registration cut-offs in October, as early as October 5th.

The nonpartisan League of Women Voters has a handy page, Vote411.org, that allows you to locate information for your state, including registration deadlines and a direct link to your state’s Board of Elections web site. Most public libraries also have information and voter registration forms. Or just Google “vote” and your state name for information on where to go and what to do. (If you use EcoSearch.org, you’ll get a Google’s search engine combined with a donation to earth-friendly nonprofits with each search.)

Today’s mitzvah: Register to vote — or if you’re already registered, consider emailing this post to someone who may not yet be registered.

I've been registered for 8 years now... Holy crap!

Oh, and Minnesota is the same way as long as you have a valid license, you can register and vote same day!
