www.declareyourself.com [a USA-centric post]

Excellent vid -- chock full o' celebrities -- for www.declareyourself.com and a plea to us'ns and thems to REGISTER TO VOTE.

Some voter registration deadlines are tomorrow! October 4th! and if you aren't registered to vote by then, you can't vote in the upcoming elections!

Some um. language makes this an only-on-the-Web phenom.

Well done.

Are you registered to vote? If not, and you are eligible and if you even just maybe kinda think that come next month you may be wanting to vote, register now! Watch the vid (or not), and hie over to www.declareyourself.com.

If you aren't sure if you are already registered, check here. If you didn't vote in the last presidential election or any election since, you are almost most certainly no longer registered to vote. That's the way it works. Don't vote in a presidential? Off the rolls. Haven't re-registered and voted since? You're still off the rolls. Have you moved since you registered? You need to re-register.

Register. Now.

(And all that bilge that the only resource used to call people for jury duty is the voter rolls so if you don't want to be called for jury duty, you shouldn't vote? Not so. California uses the drivers license registry and other resources. The bilge that you can't register to vote where you are if you're a student from somewhere else? That's bilge as well. Register. Vote.)
