Silmply because it is important to vote!

Source with informations for every state:

A few things, you must be a U.S. citizen, resident of the state you are voting in, at least 18 years old by November 4, 2008, and sign your form. Changing or registering for the first time and mailing in your application, make sure you bring I.D. to the polls.

Voting Absentee for military or citizens living outside of the U.S., information at Vote from Abroad or Overseas Vote Foundation.

Domestic absentee voters, ones that are not traveling overseas, can get more information from Long Distance Voter.

Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming has same day registration and voting.

Most on-line registration, STILL, requires you to download the form, sign and mail it in.

Wow, two of these guidelines sound EXTREMELY odd. I have quite a bit of experience working with the Voter Registration system of my state, and running the polls as well.

First off, how is a same day registration as voting even legal? How can a background check be performed to verify the registrant's legal status as a U.S. Citizen with Correct Address, Social Security Number, Name, DOB, Age, and Full and/or Restored Rights allowing them to vote?

Second, how can there be a "National Voter Registration" when every state has their own standards? The only National Standards are to be a Legal U.S. Citizen, Age 18 or over, and to be a Legal resident within the precinct which you plan to cast your vote.

As far as ID's, you MUST present a Valid ID everytime you vote in MANY states, NOT simply the First time. If you fail to present an ID, you will either be turned away, or you must sign a sworn affidavit confirming your status and Identification. If you perjure this statement, you will be prosecuted. Perjury typically carries a 5 year sentence.
