Register to Vote

Isn’t it time you finally got around to registering to vote? Have you seen the news lately? Are you happy with the changes being made everyday to your life and your livelihood? It makes no difference if you don’t vote and if you don’t express your opinions to your representatives. How else will they know what you feel?

.

You can register to vote while you pay for your new driver’s license, update your vehicle tags, while you pay your property taxes, at the Social Security office,  Local County Board of Registrars, Country Offices, Public Libraries, Department of Human Resources, WIC Office, Medicaid Office, Department of Rehabilitation Services and most 4 year colleges and universities. You can also go the local Republican or Democrat offices.

.

Don’t wait until October to register to vote. You must register at least 10 days in advance.

.

Go the votesmart.org registration page, select your state and all of your local businesses and offices accepting registration will be listed. You will also find out how to Absentee Vote. Absentee Voting is a simple process that allows you to vote when you are unable to reach to polls. This means if you are too busy and can’t get off work you can still vote. It only takes a couple minutes and your voice can be heard.

.

Don’t forget you can contact your Senators and House Representatives at senate.gov/general/contact and house.gov/representatives/.

.

You can find a link to your state’s homepage which will assist you in contacting your State Senators and State House Representatives. You vote for them also, they make changes that directly influence your state and your community.theinformedvoterinfo.wordpress.com/links-to-states.

The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature thereof for six Years; and each Senator shall have one Vote.

Immediately after they shall be assembled in Consequence of the first Election, they shall be divided as equally as may be into three Classes. The Seats of the Senators of the first Class shall be vacated at the Expiration of the second Year, of the second Class at the Expiration of the fourth Year, and of the third Class at the Expiration of the sixth Year, so that one third may be chosen every second Year; and if Vacancies happen by Resignation, or otherwise, during the Recess of the Legislature of any State, the Executive thereof may make a temporary Appointments until the next Meeting of the Legislature, which shall then fill such Vacancies.

No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen.

The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.

The Senate shall chuse their other Officers, and also a President pro tempore, in the Absence of the Vice President, or when he shall exercise the Office of President of the United States.

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: and no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

Judgment in Cases of Impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from Office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States: but the Party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to indictment, Trial, Judgment and Punishment, according to Law.
