The election may be a month away, but did you know many states have deadlines for voter registration? Some are today – but it’s not too late. Not in the age of internet and email!
Register To Vote
Registering to vote is easy, quick, and painless (I promise). Click here to go to the Register to Vote website. It’s an organization which makes it easier than ever to become registered. Simply choose your state, fill out the form on-line, print it and mail to the address provided.
Obtain Your Absentee Ballot
If you need an absentee ballot, go to the Federal Voting Assistance Program‘s website. Here you can register to vote and request your absentee ballot. I was provided an email address and could send in my absentee ballot request immediately. Two days later I received my ballot via email and now I can vote!
Both sites have contact information if you need assistance. There are NO excuses for not voting this year! Make your voice heard.
