Today's the day when people all across America pull their Democracy Bludgeons from the back of the closet and take to the streets with torches burning to hunt down the mean old Disenfranchisement Gnome and beat him with an inch of his life, while the children sing and dance and gorge themselves with sweet corn paste treats. That's right, it's Voter Registration Day!
On the off chance that you have not yet registered to vote, there is no better day in the whole year to right that wrong. In fact, some people think that's the whole reason this day exists. (Others believe it to have its origins in paganism.)
MTV's Power of 12 website has even set up a webpage to make the process as easy and painless as possible. So, you really have no excuse.
And remember, if you don't vote, the Disenfranchisement Gnome will make off with your spleen in the middle of the night.
