Monday Is Last Day To Register To Vote

Monday is the last day to register to vote in the Nov. 6 presidential election, county officials said today.

Anyone who is not currently registered, recently has moved or who recently has changed his or her name needs to register, according to Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler.

Those who are unsure if they are registered can check at sdvote.com, where online registration forms and other election information can also be obtained.

With online registration, the California Department of Motor Vehicles can confirm a voter's signature. If his or her signature is confirmed, the registration form automatically will be sent to the Registrar of Voters office.

If not, forms need to be printed, signed and mailed to or dropped off at the Registrar of Voters office, Seiler said.

Registration forms also are available at the Registrar of Voters office at 5201 Ruffin Road, Suite I, and at U.S. Post Offices, public libraries, city clerk offices and DMV offices.

Election materials are available in Spanish, Filipino, Vietnamese and Chinese, as well as English.

Registration forms must be postmarked or delivered to the Registrar of Voters office no later than Monday. The Registrar's office will remain open until midnight the day of the deadline, county officials said.

I voted!

So what?

I've been voting since I turned the legal age limit to vote. Sadly, our endless appeal system, and electoral college pretty much null & void your vote and mine.

It amazes me how many Americans do not understand how our democratic system works. People actually believe their vote matters. They do not take into consideration what is meant by politicking in 'swing states'.

The reason Ohio is so important to candidates is due to the fact they have more electoral delegates than other states. The popular vote by majority of Americans is superceded by the electoral delegates. This is why lobbyists target those delegates. If they get them (delegates) to join whatever campaign they wish, their candidate is elected to office.

Remember the first go round with George W.? He lost the popular American vote, but the electoral college gave him the majority.

That's right! Our voting is more symbolic than something that counts. Until this changes our democratic system will be bought and paid for by the lobbyists.
