November 4, 2008
The date in which George W. Bush will no longer be the President of the United States. Whether it be Barack Obama or John McCain will be left up to the electorate. Hidden behind the circus that is the presidential election, we will have a chance to vote for legislators, senators, and representatives on the national level. At the state level, we can decide on the judges we want on the bench, the supervisors running our city, and the various propositions that will affect both the state and the city.
In California, the last day to register to vote in order to participate in the presidential election is October 20, 2008 which is only four days away. The fastest way to get yourself registered is to fill out the online voter registration form and drop it in the mail box. If a printer is not readily available, then the post office will have the form available for pickup.
I encourage everyone who are of age to register to vote. Our votes may have little impact on the presidential election, but we can still make changes at the local and state level.
