4. If you live in a state in which you can register people to vote,

get started registering them as soon as possible.

If you live in a state in which you cannot register people to vote, get information on how and when they must register and pass it out to all your neighbors -- to everyone you can. Remind them how important their vote is and tell them that they have to take the initiative to register themselves.

If you live in a state that requires photo ID, tell everyone you meet or know to be prepared and take their photo ID with them to the polling booth. Organize a campaign to make sure all people who want to vote have photo IDs. Go to bus stops and tell people who don't drive that they need to get a photo ID anyway.

This needs to happen state by state.

Here in California, some years ago, I was asked to show a photo ID before I could vote -- and I was born and raised here. The couple in front of me were not. They were asked for photo ID, so I was asked also.

These are terrible laws, but the important thing is for everyone to be registered and to vote especially this year.
