Are you registered to vote?

In a number of states, you must be registered 30 days from the election. We're about to hit that mark. Make sure to register now (or update your info if you have changed addresses).

Register to vote: Vote.gov

You should add a 'Hellz yeah, why you even gotta ask?' category.

(But yeah, people may have fallen off the rolls. Be sure to check.)

Re: Are you registered to vote?

There are a number of good sites for registering or checking your status. RockTheVote.org is another one.

I didn't need to, but double- and triple-checked to make sure I am. Ready to drain the swamp!

Re: Are you registered to vote?

I’m registered, not that I have representation in Congress.

It never hurts to double check, especially given the voter roll purges that have happened in some jurisdictions.

Re: Are you registered to vote?

Hell yes. Though I have to double check to see if my Motor Vehicle Department address is up to date. I might have missed the early ballot mailing.

I prefer mailing my ballot. But if I missed it, I'm definitely going wherever I have to go to vote.

Re: Are you registered to vote?

I would say if anyone posts regularly in political forum they are probably registered to vote.

As I said, depends on the jurisdiction. There are lots of places where they are getting very aggressive about purging voter rolls. I would urge everyone to double check their registration status before it’s too late to correct it if you’ve been purged.

Yay for Oklahoma making it easy to vote. Not! No wonder this state has been consistently voting against its own best interests for years and winning.

Re: Are you registered to vote?

Just a reminder to all that your vote matters even more than you think. Stolen from elsewhere:
lots of people can’t vote. incarcerated or formerly incarcerated people, young people, some undocumented people, people disenfranchised at the polls
That also includes people who legally work and/or reside in the US (whether it's for 1 year, 5 years, 30 years...) but do not have the legal right to vote or contribute to any campaigns. Your vote affects their lives just as much as yours.

So, register and vote dammit.

I turned 18 in 1982. I've voted in every election since, for Presidential races and off years.
