Californians! Today’s the deadline to register to vote!

From the Voter Registration page from the California Secretary of State:

How You Can Register to Vote

Fill Out A Voter Registration Form Now

Click here (ENGLISH/ESPAÑOL) to download and complete the voter registration form on your computer. When you fill in your address, the address for your county elections office will automatically be added. Then simply print the form, sign it, and mail it directly to your county elections office.  [Ed note: POSTMARKED TODAY, MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2008!]

Due to an overwhelming number of people trying to download the above referenced form, it may be quicker for you to download this version of the English form or this version of the Spanish form.

Have A Voter Registration Form Mailed to You

Click here (ENGLISH | ESPAÑOL) to fill out a voter registration form that will be mailed to you for your signature. Because state law requires you to provide a valid signature on a voter registration card, you will not be registered to vote until your county elections office receives a signed copy of this form.

It will be approximately 7 to 14 days before you receive this form. Because all voter registration forms must be postmarked (or hand delivered to the appropriate county elections office) 15 days before an election, you should not exercise this option fewer than 30 days before an election.

[Ed note: TOO LATE FOR THIS OPTION!  TO THE POST OFFICE, FOR YOU, LADS & LASSIES!]

Pick Up A Voter Registration Form

You can pick up a voter registration form at your county elections office, library, or U.S. Post Office. It is important that your voter registration form be filled out completely and be postmarked or hand-delivered to your county elections office at least 15 days before the election.

So!  If you’re not registered, to go your nearest post office, fill out a voter registration form, and postmark it TODAY.
