Today, October 17th, is the deadline to register to vote in Virginia. So if you’re not already registered, and want to vote in Harrisonburg, make sure you register today!

And for those of you who want to send in an absentee ballot, make sure to request your ballot before 5:00pm on November 1st (which is 2 weeks away).

In March, I voted in Virginia for the primaries, and it was a great option to do so. I could walk to the school from my old apartment complex, and it couldn’t have been easier. So I’m a huge proponent of voting, not because it’s your civic duty, but because it’s your civic responsibility.

Moral of the story: register to vote and go to the polls on November 8th!
