Last Call for Voter Registration

Oct. 4th.  That's the deadline for doing it the easy way - either online or by mail.  Getting as many people as possible out to vote is critical in this election.  The easy way is online - and works both for new registrations and change of address. 

If you miss that deadline and still want to vote, you can still register in person at your county elections department for another 15 days, Oct. 19th, in this case.  More information on rules and regs here.

It's important and, despite the time and effort, it's personally rewarding.  I was out talking with undecided voters in Puyallup yesterday and it feels like a win each time an unregistered voter takes a registration form, better yet when you help them fill it out and take it to the mail for them.

Yay Lynn! People need to be reminded that they need to do one thing before they can vote: register! It is so easy for people to forget to do so.

Yes, I talked with someone today, a delightful woman who runs a progressive organization here in the city. She said that she walked her precinct over the weekend for an hour and a half and got 11 people registered. And that was some of the most satisfying time she'd spent in a long time.
