    In California, you can also request an absentee ballot until October 26 (even if you’ve never done it before). The forms are available at http://www.ss.ca.gov/elections/Outreach/absentee/links/GE_countyform_ballotapp2004.pdf.

    Even if you plan on being around to vote on November 2, voting absentee frees up your time on election day (in case you’re sick or otherwise have a problem getting to the polls), and ensures a paper trail. Once you fill out that file, go to http://www.ss.ca.gov/elections/elections_d.htm to find your local elections office.

    Remember to vote!

    Remeber, you can still vote for Nader. You just have to do it as a write in.

    A vote for Nader is a vote for Bush. There will be no change in this country if Shrub wins.

    My call for people to register was not supposed to be political but I feel telling people to vote for Nader has caused me to respond.

    Go Kerry-Edwards (they are on the ballot and you don’t have to waste your ink!)

    As pro-Nader as I was in 2000 and as anti-Nader as I am in 2004 I think it’s important to point out that a vote for Nader is in no way no how a vote for Bush, it’s a vote for Nader and nothing else. Scare tactics are ugly regardless of what side they are coming from.

    I agree with your last comment Sean. I did not intend for this to become a negative post, it served as a reminder for people to register to vote.

    My comment “a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush” was made in response to Terry and in no way is an attempt to scare voters. In 2000 I saw Nader speak at Chapman University. He is a driven man who has done a great deal of good for this country and I like the fact that there is a candidate who wants to create a third party, but I feel we all need to work to remove Bush from office before we experiment with a third party.

    Mike – my point is that your comment assumes that anyone voting for Nader would otherwise be voting for Kerry and that isn’t the case. I know plenty of people who are so disgusted by both people they are voting for Nader instead, but if they had to choose would default to the Bush side, in which case I think their vote for Nader is much better spent.
