What Wikipedia CAN'T tell you about voting!

So how...

Are you at least 18 years old, a US citizen, registered, and a state resident? That means you are eligible to join the many people of the nation in the election and voting process!
If you are not registered (this varies in many states) you must be anywhere from 25-30 days previous of the election.

When people are voting for a long period of time they get tired and will ignore some candidates if there are too many to choose from.
