Today is the last day to register to vote in the November 7 elections, for you folks living in North Carolina.
I was pleased to find out that it is now possible to check your voting eligibility at the North Carolina State Board of Elections web site, where you can find out where you are supposed to go to vote, and even see pictures of the facility. Something I’ve had problems with during past elections is that they keep changing where I am supposed to go. I’ll show up one place, then learn I have to go somewhere else.
That should be fixed now with the online information available.
I have always believed that if you don’t vote, you don’t have the luxury of complaining about problems with the government. I know I’ll be voting for change this year, intending to oust the antiquated Charles Taylor in favor of Heath Shuler. And according to a poll released yesterday, Shuler is leading!
