Take it, Shan:
Iâ??ve faced the possible alienation of everyone I know and suffered the threat of being punched by my roommate if I didnâ??t follow through. A recorded message from Michelle Obama herself even called me Saturday to remind me about it. Yes, being the slacker that I am, I waited to the absolute last second to re-register to vote today and was amazed the the amount of people doing the exact same thing.
A team of people was directing traffic into the Board of Elections office on Kaley Street, the overflow parking was packed as potential voters were lined up inside the building. I have to think this is good for Obama. High registration numbers can translate into a lot young, first- time voters turning out at the polls, a key demographic for Democrats this year.
You still have time to get there if youâ??re still not registered. The process took me all but 2 minutes and they are open until 7 pm tonight. You have to be in it to win it after all.
