With the economy falling apart, two wars waging, and the environment on the brink, its time to take a stand!! It is clear, this year it’s extra important to make sure your voice is heard. Plus how can you complain about the government come 2009, if you haven’t cast your vote?
So please if you have not done so already take the time to Register To Vote. There are a number of ways to register including your local Post Office, DMV/RMV, or online.
