Is your name on the voter registration list? Have you voted in your state’s primary or will you be voting when the time comes for your state? Are you sure your name is on the voter registration list?

Every voter, even if you voted in your state’s primary without any problems, should contact your county election officials and ensure you are registered to vote according to their records and that your name and address are correct in their data base. The best time to do this is later in the year but before it is too late to register if there are any problems.

Voter registrations and the voter data bases will be the problem of this election year. Vendors have made a lot of money setting-up state voter registration data bases and there have already been reports of many problems in many states. We encourage every voter to play it safe and make a phone call or visit your county election office. Make sure that when the time comes your vote will be counted and you will not have to be on a provisional ballot that may not get counted.
