To Vote for the Environment You have to Register To Vote!
by Brian Mohr, SW Office
Voting is part of living in a democratic society. Voting is one way to express your opinion about the environmental issues that you are concerned about. Whether you are supporting a candidate who supports greater environmental protection, or a ballot measure that would help to preserve open space, your vote counts!! The Sierra Club is urging all of our members to register to vote if you aren't already. If you're not sure, then find out. Registering to vote is as easy and important as tying your shoelaces. Make sure to do it now, and get it out of the way. Once you register to vote, you stay registered forever, unless you move or neglect to vote on a regular basis.
To Register You Must:
Be a U.S. citizen
Be 18 years of age by the date of the general, primary or other election in which you want to vote
Reside in this state and at your present address at least 39 days before an election.
