Don't panic, you don't have to rush out into traffic, just make sure your application (download it here) is postmarked by midnight. Dig the last-minute madness?

I still can't decide who to vote for! What to do?

You're not alone. Nearly a quarter of all eligible voters in California remain undecided according to recent polls. And now that Fred Thompson is off the scene, there's nobody left to vote for based on their portrayal of a president in a television drama. Want to make a difference? Pick a side. You can still change your affiliation/registration before the November 4th general election. Either way, show up so they know that we care.

What if I'm already registered decline-to-state?
