CHECK YOUR VOTER REGISTRATION , IF YOU LIVE IN OHIO CHECK TOMORROW AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE REGISTERED TO VOTE...CRITICAL!!!
I CHECKED ONLINE TODAY AND FOUND OUT THAT I AM NOT REGISTERED, YET I SIT HERE WITH A VOTER CARD ( ISSUED IN JANUARY 08) AND AN ABSENTEE BALLOT SENT TO ME THIS MONTH. I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS COULD BE ? I VOTED IN THE PRIMARY AND IN 2006. AND I VOTED AT THE PRIMARY EARLY AND FROM THIS ADDRESS. I WILL LET YOU KNOW WHAT I LEARN TOMORROW WHEN I GO TO MY COUNTY ELECTION CENTER AND CHECK ON MY REGISTRATION. I RECCOMMEND THAT ALL OF YOU CHECK ONLINE AND ALSO CHECK AT YOUR BOARD OF ELECTIONS.CHECK THE OBAMA SITE TO CHECK WHAT YOU NEED TO TAKE WITH YOU WHEN YOU GO....I WILL BE UPDATING THIS TOMMORROW....
***YOU CAN ALSO CHECK YOUR REGISTATION STATUS BY CHECKING OBAMA'S SITE, MOVEON'S SITE, OR ROCK THE VOTE....THEY ALL HAVE LISTS...( that is how I checked and figured out there was a problem, now I will go to my local Election Center, or Board of Elections.) Now these three sources are how I was checking and had no sucess.
Now Dk has this site to try that goes Directly through to the State Site ( all states are listed) try this and see how it works for you.
Also this is the address for the Secretary of State's Office in Ohio the Actual OHIO website.

Report: Voter purges in 6 states may violate law
October 08, 2008 10:48 PM EDT
NEW YORK - The New York Times reports that tens of thousands of eligible voters have been removed from rolls or blocked from registering in at least six swing states, and the voters' exclusion appears to violate federal law.The newspaper says its findings are based on reviews of state records and Social Security data.The Times says voters appear to have been purged by mistake, not because of any intentional violations by election officials or coordinated efforts by any party.
The newspaper says it identified apparent problems in Colorado, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Nevada and North Carolina. It says some states are improperly using Social Security data to verify new voters' registration applications, and others may have broken rules that govern removing voters from the rolls within 90 days of a federal election.
