One of the few positive results of the Vietnam War is the irresistible momentum it gave Congress to pass legislation lowering the voting age to 18. I was proud to be a part of that movement in Congress more than 30 years ago, and today millions of young people across the country can express their support for Barack Obama in the voting booth.

In a little more than a month, the American people will choose which direction to take our nation over the next four years. This choice will have far-reaching consequences for our economy, our health care, our standing in the world, and our children’s future.

But in order to have a say in this crucial decision, you must be registered to vote. In many states, voter registration deadlines are approaching very quickly. It’s essential that you and everyone you know are registered in time to cast your vote for change.

Make sure you pass it on!
