Over the last 10 months, Americans have experienced an avalanche of information and stories regarding the 2008 Presidential Election. While I wouldn’t dream of writing a blatant political post, I did experience my first bout with being a transient young professional—changing my voter registration information for the first time.
It’s actually quite easy; you can both register to vote and change your voter registration information at the City Courthouse or any of the Satellite offices around town without even waiting in line or using a stamp!
However, my real reason for posting is all the questions I had after re-registering: Where do I go to vote? What time can I go? All questions people new to the area like transient young professionals might encounter. I found http://www.vote411.org-- a great resource for all voting information, from where to when and they even link you to maps so you can plan your own Election Day commute. My favorite tool? A sample ballot so you know exactly what offices you will be voting for next month.
Now you cannot plead ignorance. Go vote!
