Now that Pennsylvania has knocked down the law that requires ID to vote (those who show up to the polls without their ID will be able to vote) the only obstacle for voters is themselves.
Tonight is the debate for the Presidential election. I suspect that Twitter will be abuzz with zingers against both President Obama and Governor Romney. The Mister and I are going to a debate watching party, so my Twitter comments may be at a minimum.
My ask is that for each tweet sent, you encourage someone to register to vote.
October 9th will be here before you know it.
