Today at Chronicle we’re celebrating our love of a different kind of paper: your friend, The Ballot.
It’s incredibly important to vote. It’s also pretty easy, and our friends at Paul Frank are making it even easier. First, make sure to register!
Through October 20th, Paul Frank Stores and HeadCount are going to make signing up easier than ever by registering voters on-site. In addition, HeadCount staff will be on hand to discuss the voting process. (As a special bonus: Everyone who signs up gets 20% off most items in the store and 10% of the stores proceeds will go back to HeadCount, a non-partisan group. All college students with a valid ID get 30% off. Spend $50 or more and receive a special, limited edition T-shirt celebrating the 2008 election and voter participation.)
Then, once you are registered, here’s the play-by-play of what you need to do:
1. Decide who/what you would like to vote for.
2. Go to your voting station.
3. Show your ID to prove you exist.
4. Wait in line for your turn.
5. Open the curtain (if your polling station has curtains).
6. Close the curtain.
7. Look at the ballot.
8. Remember who/what you wanted to vote for.
9. Mark or punch the spot next to your vote.
10. Congratulate your civic-minded self with some kind of frozen dessert.
