From Pround Black Voter Blog:

State-by-State Voter Registration Links

Brothers and sisters ... TIME IS GETTING SHORT for you to register to vote in the November 2008 election! Some registration deadlines are just a few weeks away. Please encourage people to visit the new VOTE FOR CHANGE website.

At this site people will be able to find out if they are registered to vote; get registered to vote; apply to vote absentee; plus find early vote locations.

Registering someone can be a pretty quick and simple process. It literally takes about two minutes to get a registration form completed. If, you’re going to try to register voters, be sure to find out registration requirements for your area and also please remind people about the IMPORTANCE OF BRINGING PROPER I.D. WITH A CORRECT ADDRESS ON VOTING DAY.

Below is the link for each state's Voter Registration Site with information on the requirements to get registered. Also, with so much voter "trickery" many of these sites allow you to check to ensure that you are still registered and to check your polling place.

Please share this information with others. We want to increase voter participation by everyone in the 2008 election cycle.

Finally, check the link for your state to ensure that it is still accurate!

It took some effort, but I sent a registered letter from Brazil to the town where I last voted in the United States, and I thereby registered to vote. I got the forms I needed to send from Democrats Abroad.

Their page says:


We are about to take you step-by-step through the process of registering to vote and requesting an absentee ballot.
