If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.
Today is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections.
Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.
The voter registration deadline is Oct. 9.
Voters can register to vote and/or make party changes by completing a voter registration application online. Applications are also available at any Supervisor of Elections office, Tax Collector offices and the Largo Public Library.
All voters can vote by mail. To request a ballot by mail, or for more information call (727) 464-VOTE (8683) or visit www.votepinellas.com.
