For California Voters

It's too late to register to vote in the November 7th election. California requires that you be registered fifteen days before any election.
Concerns have been expressed about the nature and quality of accountability for the accuracy of electronic voting. Voting machines have been hacked and jiggered before, and if the people in charge of an election felt threatened...
According to the Secretary of State's website, applications for an absentee ballot "must be submitted to the county elections officials no later than 5 p.m. on October 31, 2006."
An application is attached to the "Official Sample Ballot and Voter Instructions" and is also downloadable as a PDF from here or from the Secretary of State's website.
California "County Elections Officials" locations are listed here or on the Secretary of State's website.

Let's not let this opportunity get away from us. We don't know when we'll get another like it.

In our community we have continued to use that ink stamp on our ballots, whatever that system is called, so suppose it will be the same this time.
