There are deadlines quickly approaching for voter registration:
One imminent deadline is this Saturday, Sept. 22, the date – 45 days before the general election – which is set by two federal laws, the Uniformed Overseas Absentee Voting Act and the Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment Act, for election officials to send ballots to voters in the military and to civilian voters living outside the United States.President Obama attended a Townhall at Univision today and addressed Romney's 47% comment:
“There needs to be time for the ballot to get to the voter and back by Election Day – and that means 45 days” before Election Day, said Samuel Wright, director of the Service Members Law Center in Washington.
I travel around the country all the time and the American people are the hardest working people there. Their problem is not that they’re not working hard enough or they don’t want to work or they’re being taxed too little or they just want to loaf around and gather government checks. We’ve gone through a challenging time. People want a hand up, not a handout. Are there people who abuse the system? Yes. Both at the bottom and at the top. Because their are whole bunch of millionaires who aren’t paying taxes at all either.You can see the entire townhall tonight on Univision at 9 pm central time.
