How to Register to Vote in Alameda County

In honor of National Voter Registration Day, we’re giving you all the information you need on how and where to register to vote.

If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now.

Today is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections.

Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.

The voter registration deadline for California is October 22.

Here's a novel idea. How about a short article on how to register as an "Independent". Not currently a choice in the voter registration.

Hi, Joe: The ads for President Obama are paid ads. Our sales reps have talked with Gov. Romney's campaign, but so far they have decided not to advertise with us.

Joe...Not that I would vote for him,its just that Patch has got a rather large overhead (costs) to run the servers,pay their news people,support people et-al. Ergo, they sell ads to defray costs and pay their people with. Now the ads may be "cookie" related,thats to say applet programs that track what pages you go to,Patch or other wise. Plus Patch (apparently) is ownd by AOL a major(?) contributer to the President. I just ignore them.....

Thanks David and Roger for explaining the reasoning behind the ads. Now the moral dilemma of advertising for 1 candidate and not any others. Maybe you shouldn't run ads for any one president. I understand the 1st amendment rights and all but there are moral and ethical issues with it in my opinion. I mean other companies and people (non government) are also looking for ad space. Major(?) corporations should not be able to sway or push a certain political idea. I think it is poor choice, but I thank you for the explanation. I also know it is not you directly placing them there, it was a general question.
