I just got a curious email from Jon Gad, Field Organizer, Organizing for America - Nevada.

It says, the following:

Nevada voting records show that you've voted.  Thanks so much for making it out early, and helping to move our country forward by participating in this critical election!

Now that you've voted, we really need your help making sure as may Nevadans as possible get to the polls for President Obama.

Etc, etc.

The problem is that while I did vote early, I did so in Texas, not Nevada.

There is a disclaimer at the bottom that says:

Based on public information from the Secretary of State, we believe you voted early in Nevada.  We apologize if you have received this email in error.  If you have not voted yet, find out where, when and how to vote...
Etc., etc.

So I do kind of fit into this disclaimer, but it looks to me like the error refers to the fact that I've voted early v. not voted early, not in regards to the state of voting.

It makes me wonder if I should be concerned at all.

Is there any way to check if your vote has been registered properly?

Thoughts are welcome.

12:07 PM PT: Hat Tip to grubber who suggested calling Democratic Campaign in my county.  The nice lady I spoke to said not to worry, if I signed in and voted, I'm good to go.

I guess it was a silly thing to worry about but I thought it was a bit strange.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
