A voter makes her choice at a Burbank polling place during last winter’s presidential primary.
The deadline to register to vote is fast approaching. You have until October 20 to register for the all important Presidential General Election on November 4, 2008.
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s website lavote.net has a ton of information on voting and the elections. According to data on that website, there are 4,021,954 registered voters in the county as of September 8, 2008.
At the time of the California Presidential Primary on February 5, 2008, there were 3,951,957 people on the county voter rosters.
The polls right now show the race for president is very close between Senators Barack Obama and John McCain. We have heard many times that “every vote counts.” In the upcoming presidential election it just may come down to a few votes deciding the outcome.
So make your voice heard. Register and vote!
