A better question would be "how can Alameda County Democrats register to vote in Ohio and Florida?"

I'm sure they are getting that guidance from the local DNC campaign offices.

Politics suck!

The lack of a competency test for voters explains how the present incompetent political posers got elected to the Newark City Council or how any Republican wins an election elsewhere. It's not just California voters who can't stand Romney & the repugnant people & policies he represents,present company included. It's the rigid religious right's values voters that have driven the fiscally conservative Republicans & Independents to the Democratic Party this year & will ultimately be the deciding factor in the President's re-election. Yet these bible thumpers & tea party zealots are delusional enough to blame his laging poll numbers on his not being more conservative ! "If the Republican Party loses this election conservatives will have had it" Brian Fischer (American Family Association) "They will be done,finished" !!! The bottom line is that no matter how President Obama has performed during his first four years in office,this election is a referendum on whether Americans prefer a Democracy or a Theocracy ! No freedom loving American will ever allow the divinely delusional to legislate their Bible based & ill-conceived moral beliefs into the law of the land ! So pick up some voter registration forms at your local post office,library or DMV office & register as many more Democrats as you can before October 22nd. Remember the fewer Republicans there are today,the brighter America's future will be tomorrow. Romney is going to lose the debates & the election & never be seen again.
