I have just been informed that I am not allowed to vote.
Despite mailing in my voter registration, ON TIME, to the CORRECT ADDRESS, apparently it was "lost in the mail," according to the woman who works at the City of Somerville (where I live) Election Department. Because I moved out of the city where I was previously registered more than 18 months ago, I am, per her words "unable to vote on November 4th."
The Jews are not enough!
With the battle for the Swing States still in full, well, swing, it's imperative that the presidential candidates do whatever they can to try and influence voters in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida, and do it quickly.
The recent Great Schlep (the Sarah Silverman-endorsed initiative to encourage
young Jewish people to travel down to Florida and convince their grandparents to
vote for Barack Obama) was one of the more creative ways that Barack Obama's supporters have conjured to try and garner votes and media attention.
I just noticed that my own application to re-register is sitting on my desk. Registrations must be postmarked by TODAY.
If you need an application, click here. (I wouldn't RickRoll a fellow voter, promise.)
