Register to Vote, Please!

There have been many historical political upheavals around the world recently. Some of them peaceful, some of them violent. For those of us fortunate enough to live in a country in which the vote of the citizens are taken seriously, it is important as citizens to vote. If you vote, as far as I am concerned, you are allowed to complain and gripe about your government as often you want. If you don't vote, shut up.

If you live in the U.S. and are not registered to vote, you can start here to find information. You can also take a look at ProjectVote. For readers outside of the U.S. a few minutes on a search engine should turn up some local election information. There is an "www.elections.org.XX" where "XX" represents your local country code. Give that a shot, hopefully it will turn up some useful data. If you have links to specific places that you want to share, please post them in the comments.

Even if you have registered, make sure your address is correct. Some laws also require you to be registered with one of the major U.S. parties in order to vote in primary elections. Since the concept of voting has been around, corrupt people attempted to manipulate those votes. Make sure everything is in order, and get ready for your next election.

I will re-post this reminder once a month until the upcoming November elections in the U.S. After that, it will be a monthly post. It is important that each citizen exercise their rights and responsibilities!
