Register to vote NOW!

The deadline for voter registration in Pennsylvania is October 10. In your state it may be different - check here to find out.

This is the most important election since the last one. We will not be able to correct the great national tragedy of November 2004, but this election is important for another reason: it will determine whether the Bush Administration will be held accountable for any of its actions, or whether it will continue to be allowed to carry on for the next two years as it has from the moment George Bush took the oath of office for the position he was granted by a 5-4 Supreme Court decision in December of 2000.

Time to take back our country.

But not as important as the next one ... there's got to be a song in there somewhere.

BTW, I'm a little concerned about electronic voting, too. There's no perfect system, but e-voting is just asking for trouble, especially with the country so bitterly divided.

If you can't trust the voting method it blows up the whole system. I favor paper ballots.

I would accept the electronic voting system if it produced a paper plain-English receipt that could be tabulated separately. I never really trusted our old lever machines, either.

Luzerne County doesn't even have its polling places listed yet - I understand they will be changing this time around, based on the availability of electronic voting machines. I expect long lines and numerous malfunctions, resulting in people not getting to vote (or giving up in frustration) and large numbers of votes being discarded.
