The Presidential Election is only a month away which means voter registration for this election ends Monday, October 6, 2008. If you are not registered, your vote may not count in this important election.
Voting requires an individual to be a qualified voter. A qualified voter is one who is registered to vote. To register you must be a United States Citizen, you must also be at least 18 years old on or before Election Day, and you must be a resident of the county. If you have been convicted of a felony, you must complete the terms of sentence before you can re-register. A court may not have found you to be mentally incapacitated.
If you move from an address at which you were registered you must change your voter registration to this new address. If you were registered in another county and have moved here, you must re-register in your new county.
Every one is entitled to vote but there are conditions which must be followed by both you and me. You must submit the application to register and must show up at the polls. I must certify the voter registration list for the election and must not allow those who are not qualified access to the ballot box.
To register, go by the Elections Office at 111 N. Glass and complete a voter registration application no later than 5 pm, Monday, October 6, 2008.
