As legal practitioners, we at Rourke and Blumenthal have a keen interest
in ensuring only the most qualified judges and leaders are elected to
office. This will not happen unless our fellow Ohioans are registered
to vote, especially young adults. As such, our team of
Columbus personal injury lawyers are strong advocates of honoring our civic duty as free Americans by exercising
our right to vote.
If you or the members of your family have not yet registered to vote, or
if you have moved since last registering, we urge you to re-register and
make sure you are ready to make your voice heard during the upcoming election.
Additionally, if you have not voted since 2008, you may need to re-register
regardless of whether or not you have moved. A massive purge of voter
rolls has been conducted by the secretary of state, meaning that your
registration may have been affected even if you have not relocated.
How Can I Register to Vote?
The United States is one of just a handful of democracies which places
the duty to register on the individual rather than the government. Millions
of people do not vote during every election because they miss the registration
deadline or do not know how to register.
The deadline to register is October 11th, 2016. If you are not registered by this time, your vote will not count!
