Did you know that October 4th – 6th is the dead line to be registered to vote in the November Presidential Election? Why the different dates? Well, it depends on the State you live in.

Every November Election is a crucial election, but every four years we are given the chance to change our national leadership. Our Fore-fathers gave us the right and the responsibility to choose the best person to lead our great country.

I am not here to tell you who to vote for or why. My biggest concern is that EVERYONE who is at least 18 years of age is registered to vote and does vote.

Voting has nothing to do with Popularity, Religion, Gender, or Ethnicity. Voting is about exercising our rights as Americans to put someone in the White House who will protect and enforce the laws that govern this country. This country is not perfect and has many flaws within its borders as well as the flaws we have encouraged outside our borders.

Each individual needs to pick a candidate that will fix the issues that they deem are important. My issues are most likely not the same as the issues you would pick as important. Who cares as long as you are involved in this election.

The election commentators are saying that this will be the closest election in recent history. Therefore EVERY vote does count! I don’t care if you write in the name of your pet dog for President, just get out there, register, and vote!

You can even sign up for Absentee voting, which allows you to mail in your vote. This is a great option for those of us who have problems getting to the voting locations on Election Day. There is also the option of Early Voting. There are special locations that are open about a month in advanced so everyone can vote.

Remember November 4th, 2008 is the day that we ALL decide the future of this Country!
