Regardless of one’s political affiliation, EVERYONE should exercise his or her right to vote. In order for that to take place, of course, voter registration is required.

The Alabama Democratic Conference Tuscaloosa County Chapter is hosting a Tailgate and Get Out the Vote Rally on Saturday, September 22 at Annette Shelby Park.  The event will take place from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. and will include on-site voter registration and voter ID mobile unit availability.

For those who are unaware of the significance of voter registration drives, oftentimes, people get caught up in the hustle of life and don’t register to vote.  In fact, many don’t even think about being able to vote until there is an election of interest to them.  Unfortunately, simply walking up to a poll to cast a ballot just isn’t possible.  So, if the potential voter isn’t registered for the election in time, he forfeits the right for his voice to be heard.  This means that every decision made on his behalf has zero percent of his input.

Nobody wants decisions concerning him to be made by someone else entirely.  So, be sure to spread the word about all opportunities for voter registration.
