|National Voter Registration Day, a broad-based, nonpartisan effort to turn Tuesday, Sept. 25, into a national day of action and push people to register to vote before it's too late for the November election. 'As a basic organizing principle, having a date as a deadline seems to work really well,' said Dan McSwain, a spokesman for the coalition of more than 1,000 groups. According to the coalition, 6 million Americans didn't vote in 2008 because they missed a registration deadline or didn't know how to register. State deadlines vary widely, but if you register today, you're definitely in time.|
