The United States of America stands for freedom, and one of the greatest liberties given to us by this great Country is the right to Vote for the President.  While the option to Vote for the President Online isn’t yet available to the American public, we encourage each and every citizen over the age of 18 to take advantage of their most privileged right.  We are going to outline everything you need to know about Voting for the President in 2012.

The first step is to do your research on all potential Presidential Candidates, so that you have a strong understanding of their positions on the important topics for the 2012 Election.  Topics such as Abortion, Birth Control, Foreign Affairs, Alternative Energy, and the current Gas prices are at the topic of the debates this year, and each candidate has a clear, distinct position on them.  Watching public debates on tv, reading articles on the internet, and discussing the candidates positions with respected friends are all great ways research potential Presidents, and help you make the decision of who to vote for in 2012.

Once you have done your research, and have identified with one, or a couple of the Candidates, it’s time to register to vote for the President Online.  Registering to Vote is a key part of the voting process, as you will need to do so before heading out to your local poll location on Election Day, November 6, 2012.

You can Register to Vote Online, or via the Mail.  You cannot vote for the President on election day if you have not previously registered in advance.  When you do register, you are asked to declare a political party, but are not limited to voting for just what you claimed on your registration form.  There are many different places that you can register to vote for the president online, but one of the most popular is Rock The Vote, which was originally started by MTV.

What if you don’t want to register to vote online?  You can also register to vote by mailing in a registration form.  Where can you get a form to register to vote?  All you have to do is call your local electoral registration office, and ask them to mail you a form.  Just fill it out, and mail it back in to the office that you requested it from, and you will be ready to vote fo the President on election day.

After you’ve done your research, and registered to vote for the President, you will be ready to vote for the President.  Your vote will be counted individually, and if in the majority, your state will grant their electoral college votes to the Candidate of your choice.  If you vote in the minority in your state, there is a good chance that your vote will be worthless, as the candidate you voted for will not receive any electoral votes.  Alternatively, you can vote for the President Online anytime right here on this website.  No, it doesn’t count in the official election, but this online voting in a mock presidential poll gives you a good idea of what it will be like to cast your vote on Election Day 2012.
