Be Sure

Election Day is November 7th. Register if you're not already, and help be sure others are registered, too. GoVote makes it easy.

If you're not sure if you're registered, look up your state's Department of State website; they should have some mechanism to allow you to check. It'll be a local county office or official.

As an example, here's ours in Pennsylvania... where I also see that October 10th is the cut-off for registration. Don't let November fool you by seeming so far off.

Be sure.

Yeah, when we went to that International thing downtown last month, there was a booth set up and I registered then. And when they couldn't read some of what I put down, they actually called me and took the info over the phone. They're pretty serious about getting people registered around here.

Personally, I wish it was harder for people to vote, not easier. We need something to restrict the electorate and weed out the fools who simply vote however their local authority figure tells them. "One person, one vote" far too often turns into "one powerful special interest, several hundred thousand votes by mindless idiots".

I guess it's a chicken or the egg thing, educating people and then registering them or trying to bring them into the process and get them interested enough to learn.

Administering any test to potential voters... that's not a situation I want to tackle. Between getting a concensus on what should be on the test & how many different ways it's to be administered, and the outcry from those who will claim psychological distress, test anxiety and fear of/damage from potential humiliation from going in to take the test and failing... yeah, it's not something I would want to deal with on any administrative level.
