The Last Minute Is Here For Voter Registration

Brenda stockman works at the tax office. She said, "we have been extremely busy. There were people lined up 4 or 5 deep waiting to fill out their voter registration applications so they would beat the deadline on Monday."

Their office was flooded with people Friday, looking to get registered to vote. Most of them only concerned about one thing.

Stockman said, "just interested in voting for the president. That's their main thing is 'I just want to vote for the president.'"

More than $2,000 applications have come into the office during the last 3 weeks. A much higher number than in prior elections.

"Every day it's gotten more and more, and today was like the ultimate," said Stockman.

Brenda says with the war on terror and the 9/11 attacks, many people are more aware of the election and wanting to register to vote. But registering is just half of it.

Stockman said, "the main thing is to get registered and then vote. Because there's no point in registering if you're not gonna vote. That's the whole point."

If you want to vote, you have to complete a voter registration card and turn it in by Monday night.
