My buddy who is a first time voter, mailed his registration 2 weeks ago. I just went to the website to check and he's not there! Registration cutoff in Monday 10/22 in California.

Called the Secretary of State and they said to register him online.

Sure glad we checked!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    if a habitat is flooded, the improvement for target fishes increases by an infinite percentage...because a habitat suitability index that is even a tiny fraction of 1 is still infinitely higher than zero, which is the suitability of dry land to fishes.

    to go to town. I will not be able to attend to this diary. Apologies. Here is the link to check in California.

    If anybody in other states wants to add their websites to check, that would be fantastic.

    Happy Friday!

    First I checked my registration, and I have been registered to vote for decades, both online and calling the state.

    My mom runs elections in her district. As we get close to an election and right after we chat 24x7 about the process. How many people voted. You name it.

    Now I know most people can't get this, but in the past few weeks months we've talked about voter ID. We don't have this in my state.

    I asked her if she ever asked for an ID. She said three times in five years, all cause of a change of an address. I asked why. She said:

    Well I know all the people that vote. I know their names. What they look like. If somebody tried to come in and say they were "Jane Smith" well I went to school with "Jane Smith" and you are not "Jane Smith."
    Guess you can't do that in a large metro area :).

    When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.

      website every primary and election too, just because I'm paranoid ever since they "lost" my daughter in 2000. After she'd voted in every primary and election since 1992. She refused to leave without voting just because of THEIR bullshit mistake. So the state supervisor in Raleigh went through the books and found a pre-1800 law designed for 'primitives' in the frontier area of the state that allowed same-day registration. Now same-day registration is open to all!

      Sometimes not backing down does a bit of good for everybody.

    I check www.canivote.org regularly. It takes 30 seconds. You have to select your state, then, in my case, select my county, type in my name and DOB.

    Then, I am shown what looks to me to be very close to a read-out of my actual voter registration card. It shows where I need to vote (precinct, with a name of the church and an address) and lists who I vote for (i.e. which Congressional district, etc.).  Good stuff!

    Here's the link for one-click window-shopping!  ; )

    I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.
