Skip to comments.VOTE 2012 - Are you registered to vote?
Posted on 06/06/2012 9:07:56 AM PDT by Lucky9teen
14% of Americans think they are registered to vote, but they're not! That's roughly 33 MILLION people! Use the voter look up tool and make sure you are registered to vote.
I am registered, as much good as it does me. So far as I can tell, my choices are Bad and Worse for the Federal elections.
Just for S&G I checked mine....according to that I am not registered. I have voted in every election since I was 18 and am looking right at my voter registration card! WTH?
I check my status a few times per year.
As a California resident I did a dry run for November and for the first time in my voting life did not vote. California now has an open primary so the top two vote getters go on to November that means November your choice will be between democrats. As to the presidential election. I am done voting lesser evils. If its evil I will no longer give it my vote. Romney and Obama are both evil.
Vote for Romney, even if it means holding your nose in the election booth.
Yeah pick dat GOP cotton.
Will they be providing barf bags this year?
personally, I wouldn’t mind if you posted this message once/week (hint)
Here’s the email I sent out to my email lists this morning:
Valuable “Look-Up” !! USE IT
Spread this as far and wide as you can:
“This right to vote is the basic right without which all others are meaningless. It gives people people as individuals control over their own destinies” - LBJ
FIRST OFF: As you know, many people don’t want to register to vote because they are afraid they will be called for “jury duty”. Disabuse them of that misconception right now!
If you sign up to vote, will you get called for jury duty?
The court draws names from many sources, including the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). An individual is more likely to be called for jury duty because of possessing a drivers license than because of registering to vote.
So THAT excuse “don’t hunt”.
In light of the above FACT, don’t be afraid to use this valuable “LOOK-UP” tool to register to vote ONLINE yourself (if you’re not registered) ...AND... to find out if any of your family, friends and acquaintances are, or are not registered to vote.
Fill in their names and find out if they’re registered to vote. If you find that any of the people in your circle of influence are NOT registered to vote, just forward the online form to them and ask them to register ONLINE.
Fact: 14 million Americans THINK they’re registered to vote, but they’re not. That’s 33 million people! Help them find out for sure.
This is going to be THE MOST IMPORTANT presidential election in our life-time.
And you know it. Don’t be a coward cringing in the corner hoping the alligators will eat you last.
Have the COURAGE to step outside of your comfort zone.
You MUST do your part to see to it that Obama loses in the largest landslide in history.
There is no acceptable excuse for complacency, and hoping that others will do the heavy lifting for you. (”Heavy lifting” goes far beyond forwarding political email messages around.)
YOU are accountable as an American citizen to go above and beyond your civic duty to vote. These are perilous times requiring HEROIC ACTION.
You ARE up to it!

FIFTY YEAR OLD MANURE SPREADER - $1.00
Fifty-year old manure spreader. Not sure of brand. Said to have been produced in Kenya. Used for a few years in Indonesia before being smuggled into the US via Hawaii. Of questionable pedigree. Does not appear to have ever been worked hard. Apparently it was pampered by various owners over the years.
It doesn’t work very often, but when it does it can really sling the shit for amazing distances. I am hoping to retire the manure spreader next November.
I really don’t want it hanging around getting in the way. I would prefer a foreign buyer to relocate the manure spreader out of the country. I would be willing to trade it for a nicely framed copy of the United States Constitution.
Currently being stored in a big white house in Washington , D.C.
I regularly talk to two blowhards near my block who constantly moan on about how bad everything is and claim they’re registered to vote. But they’re not, as one day before the election they knew nothing about what was on the ballot, nor where their polling place was. Perhaps it’s just as well.
Thanks for the reminder, as we are moving to a new location in July.
I just went there and it said my dead father and another person who I know that should not be registered WERE REGISTERED. I then went to OUR STATES OFFICIAL site AND THEY ARE NOT REGISTERED.
Hello my Fellow Stupid Oregonians & Californians! Did ya vote???
I did my civic duty, voted in the California primary....which is less than worthless! I’m 64 years old, voted in every primary and not once has my vote counted in picking the president of the United States! In Calif and Oregon, the two states I have voted in , the candidate is already picked by a few other ...states who vote long before any of us and pick our candidate with NO input from us.
Calif has 17.2 registered voters.
Oregon has 2.8 million registered voters.
20 Million voters, whose vote doesn’t matter one bit for choosing a president who is going to represent us all! If this were any other nation, the UN blue helmets would be demanding equal voting rights for 20 million disenfranchised voters who have NO SAY WHATEVER in picking the president of the United States! The primary is the only race that matters, because the damage is done by general election time. I mean, look at this choice we’re settling for!
Why we sit here, election after election running to the poll to cast a vote that won’t matter because a couple states on the East Coast have decided their votes will pick the candidate, NOT OURS, just beyond me!
If there were ever a reason to take to the streets and scream discrimination because of geographic location, this is IT! For the life of me, I can’t understand why this farce doesn’t upset the rest of you.
The only upside is that all those illegal aliens votes in California and Oregon won’t matter either!!!! In fact, those illegal aliens who voted illegally in the early states actually had something to say about who is going to be president, but YOU didn’t!
Florida Defies Holder, Rejects DOJ Demands to Stop Purging Non-Citizens from Voter Rolls
How evil does a candidate in a general need to get before being passed up even if the least bad viable choice... and why?
I see a lot of knee jerking going on by characters who were not even able to agree on ONE viable rival to the Mittster when it counted, in the primaries. Herd of cats.
By the way why wasn’t there even something like this at the time of the primaries?
This site is pure B.S. Says I’m not registered as I sit here looking at my NEW card, (I moved this year to the next town over). Says my father is registered, he lives in a different city in the same county as I and he’s Sr. to me being Jr. of course. Strange.....
Thanks for posting this. I found out that my deceased mother is registered to vote at 2 previous addresses in 2 states, 1 of them FL. I will contact the states to let them know today.
Mr. RightField and I registered to vote in Florida this past March, having moved from California last year. We don't show up yet in a search of Florida, and we are still shown as registered in CA.
We will be sending notification to CA this week that we are no longer CA residents. In CA, no ID is required to vote or register to vote. If your name is on the list at the polling place, you are allowed to vote. It would be so easy for someone to vote in our names in CA.
“How evil does a candidate in a general need to get before being passed up even if the least bad viable choice... and why”
Supports gun control
supports special homosexual rights
supports government controlled health care
supports cap and trade/global warming
..... and on an on you get the idea?
One or more of these is good enough for me on the evil scale. Romney has “in fact” checked them all off at one time or another no matter what lies he is telling today.
I am old enough where any jerking my knees do is due to arthritis.
As to what the republicans put up for the primaries? You got me. I am not a republican partially because they have no principle as a party and have done nothing but run big spending big government trash since Reagan. If it was up to the republican party alone the Wisconsin outcome would have been different.. The tea party saved their day and thats no jerking opinion thats fact....
You will get mush answers for at least one of these (especially with your “and on and on”) out of virtually anybody but Jesus Christ.
Methinks out of your obsession about not “jerking a knee” in one direction, you jerk it oppositely, resulting in about equal irrelevance.
Possibly you would have to send a death certificate somewhere.
A problem of old data, not “pure BS.”
“Methinks out of your obsession about not jerking a knee in one direction, you jerk it oppositely, resulting in about equal irrelevance.”
Wow you got me there with that bit of cleverness... Never mind a discussion of the facts lets just be jerks.
“You will get mush answers for at least one of these (especially with your and on and on) out of virtually anybody but Jesus Christ.”
I would vote for Jesus at least he respects the individual apart from the state.
You never grokked that “the government shall be upon His shoulders” but not by any human ballot!
Old data my a$$ I’ve been registered scince 1992....
Duh, something then is rotten in the state of Denver (as Archie Bunker would put it). But it would be wise to check to be sure you haven’t been bumped inadvertently....
I verify with the state website instead. I always take the day off from work to vote just in case the lines are long.
“Well, the real question is how many people don’t think that they’re registered to vote, but really are... by someone who isn’t them?”
You’re right. I was curious about that so I checked to see if my mom is registered in WV - where she lived until almost 9 years ago. The SOS site lists her status as active, although she has lived in Georgia for 8 years now, has voted in 2 presidential elections since being here, and hasn’t even been back to WV except to attend her brother’s funeral several years ago.
