My daughter just called from Tucson where she goes to college.

2 of her friends went to early vote today on campus and were told that they were not registered.
They signed up about a month ago on campus. What happened to their registration(s) are anybody's guess.

Tucson is very blue, especially on a college campus, so I tend to think this was more of a case of
somebody screwing up than it happened on purpose. But we'll never know.
(Have to wonder how many other kids this happened to)

My daughter called me asking for advice.
They are meeting with the on campus election board on Monday.
I told them to call 1-866-ourvote tomorrow.

What other advice can I give them?

These were 2 votes for Obama.

Thankfully I raised my daughter right. She signed up online and has already mailed in her ballot :)

Thanks in advance - I'll check in later to read your responses.

edit to add - I have to tell this story about one of the girls.
She loves Barack soooo much that about 1 year ago, my daughter and her friends chipped in and bought her one of those life sized cardboard cut-outs of Obama.
Needless to say, she was in tears when she was turned away from the polls today.
