[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/10/14/art.obama.mccain.split.jpg]
It's been one of the most exciting presidential races in decades... And after two years of campaigning, it will all culminate with America's vote on November 4th. Are you registered to vote in this election?

Laws and deadlines vary from state to state, and some deadlines have already passed... Check the deadlines here and go to The Forum on CNN.com, where you can find out how to register to vote in your state, if you still can!

    The ACORN factor is not a distraction- it's an important glitch in the syst. When Mr. Johnson goes on the news and says he registered 72 times to vote in exchange for money and cigarettes, that's a glitch in the system that has to be corrected. ACORN shouldn't get away with what they're doing in Indiana.

    McCain is embarrassing his entire party with his hysterical attempts to right his ship. If Obama can be faulted for associating with Ayers what can be said about McCain for associating with Bush whose family associated with the Bin Ladens? McCain is trying to distract the voters from the truth of our economy today that he was instrumental in creating as a Senator for 26 years. The truth will always stand up and be counted no matter how much he tries to hide from it. The maverick's days ended in 2000 when Karl Rove showed him the door by insulting him and his family and he did nothing about it. The McCain we see today is only a shadow of the maverick proven by his lame selection for a VP.

    Well, I have a question about this- in PA, you needed to register to vote by October 6th- but what if you turned 18 after the 6th? But before Nov 4? Are you not allowed to vote?

    this is the time or never for a dark skin candidate to win the elections if we are talking democracy,
    republicans are not and they never were qualified to lead the country to glory and world respect just look at the History of republicans, economic crisis, wars and hate from other country.
    McCain is not qualified to lead, he kept talking about his heroism in Vietnam war but he was actually a rebellion, he wasn't a good soldier and he wasn't the only hero of the war the real heroes are living in shelters. McCain and Palin should stop talking to americans like retarded voters

    The ACORN case is a distraction, registration is one thing , voting is another, you have to register first and this process has to be approved before they send you the card to vote, all this is at the level of workers, perhaps someone is getting ready to perpetrate a fraud, perhaps money has been passed to this workers by the Republicans to create a scandal; but when Al Gore was hurt in Florida by this practices, nobody said a word, it was a circus back than and we got 8 years of ignorance, the word "class " in the Republican party doesn't exist.
    Hitler run a negative campaign and he used the fear factor against
    the Jewish people, and look what happened, a chaotic time that I rather not to remember, listen to Rick Sanchez this afternoon, the liaison of Tadd Palin & Sarah with this radical anti government group
    who she supported while in the office of the governor, is like guns is the law of the land, in Alaska. wake up America!

    Sarah Palin has been drowning the Mccain campaign, the negative tone that has been used throughout this campaign is simply unacceptable, negative rhetoric agitates masses and is cause of concern for all of us that are watching this derogatory terms used by the people that goes to this rallies, what happened to the Senator McCain we all use to know, I think his thinking process may have been affected by the melanoma on his temple, when he introduced Sarah Palin to us I thought that she was an insult to the intelligence of American women, she is not qualified to be a president in case something happens to McCain, he is so old that I feel the need to protect him instead of him looking out for me, grandpa needs to go home and continue doing the business for his State.I am a libertarian, and to me it would of been easy to vote for Mccain if he had a different agenda from Bush, but is the same dress with different color.

    Why bother? ACORN, is going to help Obama steal this election. I'm sure this won't make it on to the blog, because everybody already knows that CNN, is it the tank big time for Obama.

    If I did know any better I would swear that President Clinton and Senator Clinton was campaigning for McCain. They are still bitter about losing the primary. Pay close attention to what they do not what they say.
