Please signal boost widely!
This is the easiest way to register to vote in the U.S. that I’ve found.
If you don’t have access to a printer or a car (like me), you can go to this website (TurboVote.org - translations in English or in Spanish), fill out your information, and they will mail you the printed forms AND a stamped envelope addressed to your county clerk’s office. All you have to do is pop it in the mail box once you receive them and you’re registered.
You can also sign up to do an absentee ballot/vote by mail so you don’t need to find transportation (or take the time off work) on election day.
It’s definitely legit because I just received and sent off the forms today. I’m not affiliated with the site in any way, I’m just excited to find such a great resource.
Please share the site on facebook, tumblr, twitter, and tell your friends and family about it.
Registration is due in 40 days, people!
REGISTER TO VOTE! Because it’s never a done deal and if you don’t vote you forfeit your right to THE GREATEST USAMERICAN PAST TIME: complaining about the administration for the next four years!
Think of all that’s at stake!
There. Now nobody can say it’s too hard to register.
Even if you have zero interest in the presidential thing, there’s usually a ton of local initiatives on the ballot too which affect stuff like your tax burden, your local education funding, who can marry who, i.e. stuff that can have a big, direct and immediate effect on your life. Again: C’MON.
