Online voting site provides easy alternative to polling booth

Mikayla Foland/Staff Writer

If you’re planning to vote this year but don’t know how to go about it, we’re here to help.

Election Day is always the Tuesday following the first Monday in November.

This year, Election Day is Nov. 8.

If you have not filled out a voter’s registration form, there is an easy and fast way to get it done.

All you have to do is go online to rockthevote.org.

On the home page you click on where it says register here.

The next step is printing out the form they provide for you on the website.

After filling this out, you can mail it to your county auditor’s office.

You can be 17 and a half when you fill this out, but you must be 18 on Election Day.

Another option you have is registering yourself at the polling booth on Election Day.

On Election Day, you need to bring your driver’s license or some other type of photo identification to the polling booth.

After having your personal verification confirmed, you will sign a ballot ticket and receive a paper ballot.

After you have finished voting, you will insert your ballot into an optical scanner to make sure it is filled out correctly.

It will either be accepted and dropped into a locked ballot box or it will be returned to you in order to make corrections.

If you have followed all these guidelines successfully, you will be a citizen who has officially voted in the 2012 United States Election.
