Hope is important. So is enthusiasm. Hope coupled with enthusiasm plus action is what brings about change.

The most important action we can take is to vote in the national presidential election on Tuesday, November 4, 2008. That’s less than ten short weeks away. In order to be able to vote, you need to be registered.

Are you registered to vote?
Have you moved recently and need to register?

Type “Voter Registration” plus the name of your state into a search engine like Google. Soon you’ll be following links to get yourself registered.

Or go to RockTheVote Voter Registration and fill out the form to receive a voter registration form via e-mail.

Are you already registered to vote? Good for you!
Do you know where your polling place is?
Have you thought about voting early?
Many states allow early voting without cause. Check with your election authorities.

And if you’re already registered to vote, help someone else to get registered!

Want to help on a larger scale? is launching a campaign to register half a million new voters.

Turn HOPE into reality. VOTE!

I love your political updates, although I'm completely clueless on the subject. Here, in South Africa, we have so many people who mutter and moan about the state of politics here, but fail to vote. Makes me so mad!!

Hi Sue -
These past four days have been very exciting. My focus has been zeroed in on the convention and that has been reflected on the blog!

I wish that more people would become engaged in the process. We are so fortunate to have an accessible government and the right to vote. When I turned 18, I couldn't wait to register and cast my first ballot.

The right of everyone to vote in this country was a long, painful and bloody struggle. We owe it to those who came before us to exercise that right. Something I know you folks in South Africa can more than relate to.
