Voter apathy is a greater danger to our nation's future than even the lack of leadership that has been so prominently on display over the last number of years by the elected leaders of both parties.

In 2008, 6 million Americans did not vote because they did not know how to register or missed registration deadlines, according to the US Census. This year, volunteers, celebrities and organizations from all over the country will “hit the streets” for *National Voter Registration Day and they hope to reach thousands. Locally, voter registration is being held at the Avenues Mall, the Regency Square Mall, the Ponte Vedra Post Office and other sites to be announced by your county Supervisors of Elections.

Voter Registration Applications can be picked up at various places, including the First Coast Tea Party office, public libraries, driver’s licenses offices and Supervisors of Election offices.
