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.

SENATE CLASSES (DETERMINE WHEN RE-ELECTION HAPPENS)

http://www.senate.gov/reference/glossary_term/class.htm

Article 1 sect 3 of the Constitution requires the Senate to be divided into three classes for purposes of elections. Senators are elected to six-year terms, and every two years the members of one class — approximately one-third of the senators-face election or reelection. Terms for senators in Class I expire in 2019, Class II in 2015, and Class III in 2017.
