Register Your Ass To Vote

Friday is the final day to register to vote in New York to be able to vote in what some idiots are calling Tsunami Tuesday aka February 5th when a alot of states are holding their primaries. It may actually mean something since there is no sure fire candidate yet. Here's what you need to do. Follow this link (if you live in NYC) and find the link to the registration form in English (if you speak English). Click the link and download the forms, fill them out and send them in. If they are post marked by January 11th you are good to go. Here are the qualifications as stated on the Board of Elections site:

To register to vote in the City of New York, you must:

Be a citizen of the United States (Includes those persons born in Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands).

Be a New York City resident for at least 30 days.

Be 18 years of age before the next election.

Not be serving a jail sentence or be on parole for a felony conviction.

Not be adjudged mentally incompetent by a court.

Not claim the right to vote elsewhere (outside the City of New York).

Also, you don't have to have a New York ID to register and the postage is free!
