Monday Is Last Day for Voter Registration

October 06, 2008
- jb

With Monday’s final day for voter registration fast approaching, several campaigns and both parties used the weekend for last-minute voter registration drives. Here Democrat Sidney Chism, flanked by local Obama-Biden campaign director Nika Jackson (left) and Get-Out-the-Vote organizer Brett Thompson (right), exhorts party cadres to make one last effort in the Whitehaven/South Memphis area.

Registration concludes on Monday at the Election Commission at 2nd and Poplar downtown. All completed forms, from whatever source, must be in by 4:30 p.m Monday.

early voter registration= ACORN styled set-up for voter fraud. just like in ohio,minnesota,denver. just another way to try and steal an election.And remember,, Obama taught these people how to vote like this when he was a "community organizer"...

V-8---how the hell do you have the balls to talk about voter fraud when bush stole both 2000 and 2004??? You've got a lot of nerve, dude.

rantboy, he's off the charts wingnut. he and the other wingnuts are desperate to keep as many black people and other minorities from voting b/c they don't truly believe in democratic ideals. They just believe in power (hence his stupid screename linking a fruit drink with that word). Furthermore, he and all the other wingnuts know that demographically, the republican Party is doomed, since they have basically blown off trying to appeal to, and represent at all blacks and hispanics. What happens in 30, 40 years when whites aren't the majority anymore? Doom for the Republicans, that's what. And they don't believe their party should change or adapt, so they're screwed.

This could happen in Memphis.===================== Nevada state authorities seized records and computers Tuesday from the Las Vegas office of an organization that tries to get low-income people registered to vote, after fielding complaints of voter fraud. Bob Walsh, spokesman for the Nevada secretary of state's office, told the raid was prompted by ongoing complaints about "erroneous" registration information being submitted by the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, also called ACORN.

A troll who has apparently never participated in the election process, else they would know that there is no such thing as 'early voter registration'...People register to vote year round, except for the deadline just before the actual elections.
