Checking if you're registered to vote made easy

MoveOn.org has set up a website where you can check if you're registered to vote.

Maybe it's too late in your area, but I'm posting their email anyway, just in case you're not and you have a burning desire to do something about it.

It's not only for yourself, but as a reminder for your friends as well. Here's the email they just sent around:

Voter registration is public information, but states don't make it easy to access. So until now, this data has mostly been available to the political consultants, but not to real people. Now, with VotePoke, that's all changing—anyone can make sure their friends are signed up and registered.

You would be surprised at how many of your friends aren't registered—or used to be registered—or really just aren't sure. We'll be in great shape for the election next November the more new and young voters we can turn out—and you can help by taking responsibility for your own group of friends.

Research shows that a reminder from someone you know is the single best way to get someone to the polls ... make sure every vote counts on Super Tuesday and beyond.
