2008 Elections: Register to Vote!


Over on Digg, commenter Bitfreak posts voter registration deadlines for the states.

If you haven't registered yet, please check your date here and register to vote well in advance. Remember that Republicans have openly declared that they will contest votes so be sure to register in enough time to fight any possible disenfranchisement. Ask your family and friends (regardless of political affiliation) if they have also registered. Persuade them to register, offer them rides if needed, do whatever it takes. This election will decide your fate, the fate of your children and grandchildren, and, most important — the fate of the nation.
