You can also go online to rockthevote.com. It helps you fill in the registration form online, and then you print it out and mail it in . Its very simple and easy.

Thank you for a helpful, non judgmental response.

I never made excuses for having not registered, at least I was honest. I really don't understand the way that some people attack others on here. It's really uncalled for.

I don't even think I filled out an application for voter registration at the DMV. I registered to vote when I was renewing my license shortly after turning 18. I just remember them asking if I wanted to vote, if I wanted to register with a political party, and then to sign here. Then before the next election they sent me a card telling me where to vote.

Then I have to ask, do they no longer teach civics in our schools? This should be known by every single person when the receive their high school diploma.

The people with virtually no access to education throughout the world also know how to vote and vote in numbers that should embarrass every single person in this country.

No they don't (makes me so furious) and that's part of the problem in America.

Why do any of you bother to vote for these fools? I rarely take time out of my day to go vote. I did in 2008 cause of the mess GWB created - this country couldn't survive another 4 yrs of a R president. Of course, I also voted for GWB in 2000, so a lot of good my vote did then too. Wish I had stayed home that day. Since I voted for him, I have a lot of blood on my hands just like some of you.

When they make voting on a saturday or make it a national holiday, then I may change my mind. In the year 2012, can't we vote on the internet?

There's a reason they make voting so complicated - they don't want educated, working people to vote.

It's a shame something like amendment 1 was on a may primary ballot. Gee, wonder if that's a coincidence now that reps are in charge of this state?
