Americans: Are You Registered to Vote This Year?

We know interrupt the regular CorpGoth fashion blog to speak to an issue very dear to my heart: Voting. If you are an American citizen age 18 or older, you have a Constitutional right, privilege, & responsibility to vote in every election. And especially this year, we have a presidential election, which is vitally important to your life & all our lives. I'm not going to tell you who to vote for, just that you must vote. Make your voice heard. Take part in the process. If you don't, you're letting someone else run your life, & why would you do that?

Early October starts the voter registration deadlines in many American states. Take a look at this site from the election commission to find out exactly when the deadline to register is in your state, & follow the links to get information on how to register. Another nonpartisan site is useful too -- Can I Vote? will help you find out if you're registered already. Also take careful look to see if your state has passed new legislation requiring IDs to vote or limiting hours at the polls. Be informed before you vote!  This site can even help you register online for many states.

Either vote absentee ballot, or get out to your polling place on November 6 and vote!
