Last Chance To Register To Vote!

Friday, October 8, 2004

Since only currently-registered voters are permitted to cast ballots in this year`s elections, it is critical that every eligible Second Amendment supporter registers to vote in time to have his voice heard on November 2!

While voter registration deadlines have passed in many states, the following states are still accepting applications. Here is a list of those states and the corresponding voter registration deadlines: AL (10/22); CA (10/18); CT (10/19); DE (10/13, 4:30 p.m.); ID (Election Day); IA (10/23); KS (10/18); ME (10/23 by mail and up to and including Election Day); MD (10/12); MA (10/13); MN (10/12 or on Election Day at the polls); NE (10/15 for mail-in; 10/22 for in-person); NV (10/12 in-person); ND (no voter registration required); NH (10/23); OR (10/12); SD (10/18); UT (10/13); VT (10/25 by noon for in-person; by mail must be postmarked or delivered by 10/25); WA (10/18 in person); WV (10/13); WI (10/20 for mail-in; 11/1 in person; or on Election Day at the polls).

Also, you`ve read many times in the Grassroots Alert about the importance of voting early or via absentee ballot. NRA-ILA has received word that Secretaries of State are asking early voters to return their applications on or before October 22. It is the general consensus that--regardless of a legal deadline--returning applications by October 22 allows enough time for processing the application, mailing the ballot to the voter`s home, and having the voter return it to the appropriate office. Again, this is a general guideline that the Secretaries of State are requesting.

NRA-ILA has a section of its website to assist you in registering to vote and getting the information you need on early/absentee voting. To access this site, please go to www.NRAILA.org, and click on the "NRA-ILA HelpingAmericansVote" icon and select your state. Or, you can go directly to the site at http://NRA.HelpingAmericansVote.org.
