US Citizens of voting age and privileged to vote MUST be registered very soon, if not by tomorrow (October 6, 2008) in order to vote in this year’s General Election. THIS is one of the MOST important elections in history. Not only will we have a chance to make history, but we will also be telling Congress and our elected officials that ENOUGH is ENOUGH.
MAKE SURE that you are registered to vote. Look at the issues that affect you and the world around you and make YOUR best choice. Vote on your faith, your conscience and what YOU stand for and believe in. But most of all, VOTE. We need EVERY vote to count. EVERY VOICE MUST BE HEARD.
Do your civic duty and find out where your polling place is and VOTE. Make sure that you can get there. Find out where you can get voting assistance, if you need it.
In Washington, DC, the deadline to register to vote is Monday October 6, 2008.

Members of the US Armed Forces: Please be sure to fill out your Absentee Ballots and send them in. You’re already fighting for us to keep and maintain that privilege. Please make sure you exercise your rights as well. Thanks for voting and also for serving your country. Peace be with all of you and may God bring you all home safely.
Yours for change and voter registration,
Joseph R. Mays
