Don’t forget that you have to register in advance if you want to vote on the most important day of the year this fall in most states. I could go into a rant wondering why there are so many hoops to jump through for a simple registration, or why every single state gets to set its own rules for how to register (i.e. it took me an extra 10 seconds to register when I renewed my license up in Michigan, but either it’s not as easy here in Florida or I just really wasn’t paying attention when I got my license five years ago!), but instead, let’s just leave all that behind us and get down to the nitty-gritty…

Here’s the form that I just printed out, if you also happen to live in the Sunshine State…

Also, there’s a link right in the middle of the Rock the Vote page that will e-mail you the right form for your state, although it looks like you might also be signing yourself up for solicitations…

Lastly, here’s the actual site that I found the link to Florida’s details on – if you need the form for another state, you can look here without having to hand over an e-mail address…

In the State of Florida, you need to be registered for at least 29 days before you can vote in an election, meaning that it’s looking like October 6th is your deadline – only a month away! I’m normally not one to care much about politics, but look where that attitude has gotten us over the last eight years! Just print the form, spend the 42 cents, and let’s get this change train a-rolling… 🙂
