Today Is The Deadline To Register To Vote
Procrastinators listen up! Today is the absolute last day to register to vote, no worries we can help.
This year’s election has been a roller coaster. The presidential candidates have been back and forth taking the lead. If you want to make sure that your voice is heard, you need to head to the polls.
In order to vote, your application needs to be in the voter’s registrar’s office at least 30 days before an election. So that means the deadline to vote for the next President is October 11, 2016, which is today!
If you don't know where to begin, we have all the information you need.
