One thing I try and avoid is conversations over politics and religion. I am not registered to any political parties and I have voted for Republicans and Democrats in the past few elections. That being said, I am a proponent of democracy and having the right to vote.
Please make sure you take advantage of the rights fought so hard for you and your family by ensuring you are registered to vote in your specific county by October 2, 2010. South Carolina has a website that is so easy to navigate and verify your registration in less than a minute: http://scvotes.org/.
As the Anderson Independent pointed out in it’s article,"Voter Registration Deadline is Oct. 2", It’s important to remember that you will need to register to vote if you have moved from one county to another (need to register in the new county).
If you are not registered, there are several, quick and easy solutions that only require a few minutes of your time. You can also read over proposed 2010 State Constitutional Amendments.
South Carolina General Elections are Tuesday, November 2, 2010. Read up on the candidates and vote.
