Today (Oct. 6) is the last day to register to vote in Texas before the general election. Why does this matter? Well, if the opportunity to vote for president in a moment of historical importance doesn’t move you, think about this.
When you need something from your political representative (say you want them to vote a certain way on a bill about orphan works), they want to know if you matter when they run for re-election. They can easily look you up and can find out when the last time you voted, if you vote in primaries, etc.
Many states have Oct. 6 as the deadline to register to vote. If you haven’t already done so, register today and vote.
