NBC12 VIEWPOINT: The deadline to register for the Virginia prima - NBC12 - WWBT - Richmond, VA News On Your Side

NBC12 VIEWPOINT: The deadline to register for the Virginia primary is Monday 2/8

If you paid any attention to the Iowa caucus, you surely understand how important it is to be registered to vote. No one predicted that Secretary Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders would essentially end in a dead heat for the Iowa caucuses, although technically Clinton won. 

And not many pundits correctly predicted the outcome of the race between Donald Trump, Senator Ted Cruz and Senator Marco Rubio. At the end of the day, the voters had the last word.

The stakes have never been higher and in a couple of weeks, on March 1, Super Tuesday the citizens of Virginia will have their opportunity to vote for the candidate of their choice.

If you want to vote in the Virginia Primary, you must be a registered voter. If you are not registered, the deadline to register is Monday, February 8.

Congratulations to all of you, young and older, who have decided to do your civic duty and vote. I also know that there are others who are eligible to vote, but don’t see the importance of voting. 

If this sounds like you, please don’t complain about the problem if you are not willing to be part of the solution.
