In many states, this Sunday will be your last chance to register to vote. In some, you have to get your registration in the mail as soon as Thursday.
You already know how important voting is—you wouldn't be a MoveOn member if you didn't. But that doesn't necessarily mean you're properly registered. Thousands of names are mistakenly purged from the voting rolls every year.
So, our friends at Working Assets have created a website to make registering (and re-registering) very, very simple. The whole process takes under 5 minutes. Just click here to get started:
Even if you think you might be registered, there's no harm in re-registering. Better to re-register than be denied your right to vote on Election Day. (And there are no legal problems with doing so, as long as you only vote in one place.)
On the page above, you can also send emails to your friends and family to make it easy for them to register. You can even send registration text messages for free to your friends' cell phones.
The more progressives vote, the more representatives will pay attention to us. It's that simple. So take a moment today—before the deadline this Sunday—to make sure you're registered. And please pass this note on to others who would find it useful.
Thanks for all you do,
–Eli, Justin, Karin, Wes and the MoveOn.org Political Action Team
