Voter Registration Drives Succeeding
Statewide, nearly 215,000 people between Jan. 1 and Sept. 1 registered as a new voter or because they moved to a different county, according to Magellan Data and Mapping Strategies in Louisville. ....Of those newly registered voters, 78,013 are Democrats, compared with 48,451 Republicans. New unaffiliated voters outnumber both major parties, with 85,795 registrations during that eight-month period, according to the political consulting firm.While Sen. Barack Obama's Campaign for Change is the largest voter registration drive, there are almost 300 others. Another successful one is Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, or ACORN.
ACORN targets minority communities and has submitted more than 65,000 voter forms, including first-time voters and already registered voters who are updating their information or requesting a mail ballot, said state director Ben Hanna.Voter registration in Colorado ends October 6. You can register online or check your status with the clerk and recorder of your county. Even change of address forms are online as are forms to request a mail-in ballot.
