Sept. 20th: KSLA News 12 Register to vote Editorial

Posted: Updated:

Four years ago, the race for president got a lot of attention but still, 38 percent of those in America who were eligible to vote…didn't.

The race for the White House this year is again hotly contested with enthusiastic supporters on both sides. Hardly a day goes by without

President Obama or Mitt Romney making a campaign appearance somewhere…usually in one of the swing states.

It is important for all of us to have our say in this election and we do that by casting our ballot in November. To do that, you have to be registered to vote…and time is running out.

In Arkansas and Louisiana you have to register by October 8th. The deadline in Texas is October 9th.

There are many ways to register by mail, on-line or in person at the Registrar of Voters Office or at other public locations like libraries and the Department of Motor Vehicles. It varies by state.

If you are already registered…you are good to go. If you need to register, now is the time.

I'm James Smith.
