If you go to this website, you skip all the intro stuff. It's still part of Obama's website, but it's the part to check your voter registration.

scroll down and click "skip intro" or whatever. It's annoying, I know.

I'm not sure HOW it works --- I just went to OBAMA.COM and followed directions. It showed that I'm ready --- and I'm registered as an independent. It may not be completely up to date, with all the new folks registering. But, it may help if you're even close to unsure. If you don't show up as OK on his site, then check with your county office.

How can that be possible? Wouldn't that make it impossible for new voters to vote?

I think there's a place on Obama's web site where you can check to make sure you're registered to vote. I'd have to check through a ton of emails to find it -- or you can just go to the site and see. Sorry I don't have time this morning.

There has been alot of mis-information spread about who can vote - addresses having to match - etc.
CHECK TO MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS KOSHER WITH YOUR REGISTRATION - REGARDLESS OF HOW MANY YEARS YOU HAVE BEEN REGISTERED. The Republican Party has pulled some pretty dirty tricks just recently - including sending a mailer to registered Democrats telling them their party status had changed to Republican.

Check with your Supervisor of Elections in the county/parrish in which you are domiciled.

Do make sure, absolutely sure. Because I hadn't voted in 20 years - 20! - but I am still able to vote absentee from abroad.

You may have to re-register, and that may be a problem if the registration deadline is past, but all I had to do was state the last place I DID vote (Oregon) and it was fine.

So, whatever you, don't assume. Check to make sure your registration is still valid with your county courthouse.

Are you sure that's a new law? That law has always been in effect in Colorado as far as I know, and I think it's 4 years. The advice is good, though. Make sure you are registered. You can check. www.voteforchange.com

Check with your Secretary of State's office if you aren't listed. For some reason, I'm not on Vote For Change, but I'm listed with the Secretary of State.

Please check the laws of your state because suddenly in Oklahoma there is a "law" that if you haven't voted in the last 6 years- you aren't eligible to vote. MAKE SURE YOU ARE REGISTERED AND KNOW WHERE YOUR POLLING PLACE IS LOCATED!!!!!!
