Day 32: Register to vote in Illinios
October 4, 2010 § Leave a comment
Why? Because my new state needs me. Tight senate races, Rahm Emanuel running for mayor, corruption around every turn – Illinois really has a vibrant political scene. To be honest, it may be a little too vibrant. I used to get annoyed in Portland when I had to listen to a political advertisement every so often. Now I’m lucky if they air only two per commercial break. The other day I even saw four political ads, one after the other, in a single break. I’m pretty sure that a couple of the ads in that series were even for competing candidates.
But seriously, tomorrow is the deadline to register, but it’s not too late. There is a lot going on in the world, so if you want to have a say, check out Rock the Vote for assistance registering or re-registering. It is so easy – the site fills out the forms for you. Check it out, it’s the American thing to do.
