The 2012 presidential election is one of the most highly contested races in history, and one that will significantly impact the next four years in our country and in our lives.
President Barack Obama and his challenger Governor Mitt Romney have completely different views on the economy, taxes, healthcare and the role of government. The power to choose which direction our nation will move lies in our hands, but that power can only be executed if you vote, and you can only vote if you register. Election Day is less than a month away, and the last day to register to vote in many states is quickly approaching, if it's not already here.
Take note if you live in the following states, then TODAY is your last day to register:
Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Mexico, Texas, Utah and the District of Columbia. And key battleground states: Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
But don't fret. Registering is quick and easy and you can get it done in a few minutes. Just go to gottaregister.com and also share this information with your family, friends and anyone that needs to register to vote or update their status. Also, don't hesitate to share this info on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Remember, it's not only your right to vote, but it's your duty. People died just so everyone in this country would have the ability to vote, so be grateful and be responsible.
Plus, you can't complain about society if you don't do something as small as voting!
