Many Voter Registration Deadlines Looming

Posted by DavidNYC

Matt Stoller notes that voter registration deadlines in many states are very, very soon. If you haven't yet registered to vote, please do so! And if you aren't sure of your registration status (you've moved in recent years, etc.), please call your local board of elections to check. If you are already registered, then your mission should be to register at least one other person in time for election day. With web-based tools, it's easier than ever:

Pro-Net Neutrality Voter Registration Tool

Standard Voter Registration Tool

The first link takes you to a site which will tally up how many people register with the goal of supporting net neutrality. If for whatever reason that doesn't interest you (or your friends or relatives you're trying to sign up), follow the second link.

Thanks for providing this information, but my fear is that people who read this website are already engaged and registered. Our real challenge as activists is not just to vote, but to go out there, talk to other people in the off-line community and get them to vote.

People always complain that their vote "doesn't count" because they're only one of millions. That may be true, but you can have a lot more impact by mobilizing many others to vote. Suddenly, your efforts translate into 5 votes, 10 votes, even 50 votes. That's enough to swing an election.

Democracy isn't just about voting. It's about people coming together collectively to bring about change. Voting is the bare minimum of what people need to do.

That's my assumption, too, Paul - so that's why I encouraged people to register others as well.
