This is just sickening. Do you realize how easy it is to sign up (online) to vote by mail? A ballot is sent to your house, you fill it out and it's that simple. You've occupied the polls dude!

New data indicate that one of every four Utah adults is not registered to vote this election year. That concerns both major parties — which squabble over blame and what reforms might improve numbers.

“That is really troubling, and improving it should be a No. 1 priority for both parties,” said Utah Republican Party Chairman Thomas Wright. Utah Democratic Party Executive Director Matt Lyon added, “That’s awful. We’re hugely concerned.” – Lee Davidson / SLTribune [Via DrinkingLiberallySLC]
