With most state voter registration deadlines coming this week, it's essential that citizens who have moved or never before registered take action.
Most states require registration 30 days before the election, which means that registering by Friday is the safest bet, given that Nov. 4 is barely a month away and many government offices are closed on the weekends.
Fail to register, and you can't vote.
As a reminder, a seemingly endless stream of celebrities appear on this PSA with the counterintuitive message: Don't Vote.
It's by turns funny, poignant (and yes, occasionally preachy). But the point is right on: Don't vote ... unless you care about global warming, the financial crisis or any of the issues facing the nation today.
