when filling out a voter registration form

please keep in mind a few things.

1) write legibly. someone actually has to try to interpret your chicken scratch.
2) provide a phone number or email so that when your chicken scratch can't be deciphered they can actually contact you to ask questions.
3) please remember where you live...provide the proper address of your residence, not a p.o. box.
4) spell your name correctly.
5) sign where the form indicates that you sign.
6) try to remember where you were born.
7) try to remember what day and year you were born.
8) turn in forms on time. when the deadline clearly states on the form "must be submitted to the office by such a date and no date stamps will be accepted..." it means just that.
9) know what a registration form looks like.
10) if you have moved after the last election....reregister.
11) if you have changed your name after the last election....reregister.
12) if you have changed your party affiliation....reregister.
13) if you have changed your signature....reregister.
14) know what county you live in.
15) know what state you live in. (kid you not, kids on this one....)
16) don't swipe someone elses absentee ballot application and fill it out by crossing out their name
17) if you know that you will be out of town on election day, don't wait until the last minute to apply for an absentee ballot
18) if you know that you will be out of the country, don't assume that the elections office will pony up for a fed-ex next day delivery to you to fill out your absentee ballot application
19) you might not be able to vote for those candidates you see advertising on t.v....they might not be running in your district. yelling at the people in the elections office will not change that fact.
and lastly,
20) know when election day is.

unfortunately, it is all too true.

17a. If you know you're going to be out of town and your locality offers early voting, do it. Two benefits: a) no worries about mailing the ballot and b) lines are one heckuva lot shorter than they will be on election day proper, so you can study the choices (I've got five ballot initiatives on mine).

You are entirely missing the main piece of information.

When people 'reregister', they are being DISENFRANCHIZED by the tens of millions, nationwide.

IF your rereg. form doesn't EXACTLY match all information on your drivers licence (or other identification that the gov't has, typos and all), then your reregistration probably ended up in the TRASH, if you are a Democrat, and especially if you are a minority.

This is a result of Rep. Tom Noe's 'Help Amerika Vote Act' (by voting for it), which REQUIRES states to create voter PURGE LISTS. They, of course, hire 2000 Purge-lister CHOICEPOINT

or DIEBOLD to create these programs. In Florida, Ohio, and California, it is already clear that millions of Dem voter(s) have been nullified using this method.

They are BRAGGING about it.
