It doesn’t matter if someone is voting for John Kerry, George Bush, Ralph Nader or Bozo the Clown, if you want to vote and aren’t registered, I’d HIGHLY recommend checking your state laws to see what you need to do. If I hadn’t, I might have been in real trouble come Nov. 2.
I moved last year and hadn’t gotten around to changing my address on my state ID (I don’t drive so I don’t have a driver’s license). I was downtown Friday and decided to get it taken care of. I found out that if I had waited 27 days or less before the election I wouldn’t have been able to vote!
Whew! I wasn’t worried at all and it never crossed my mind that I could have been shut out. I could easily have waited until mid-October to do this. THANK GOODNESS I DIDN’T WAIT!
