As the Presidential election draws near, it is urgent to ensure that every citizen is registered to vote. The states vary in regard to registration deadlines, so be aware that it can be as early as October 6th, 2012. The candidates in this election differ greatly on issues such as national security and defense spending and there are many close elections in the offing, so your vote can really make a difference.
Those who have moved in the last two years or changed their name should also re-register to vote at this time.
We have provided a link to the voter registration page on our website below. Just follow the simple directions to become a registered voter in your state. Make sure you have your address, zip code, and driver’s license or social security number on hand as these are necessary components of the five step process. If you do not have Adobe Acrobat, you will need to download it here so that you can print the registration application form, sign, and mail it to your Secretary of State.
