October 15: Last day to register to vote in Massachusetts.
Update: Here's how to register to vote in Massachusetts.
Because we moved from Cambridge to Somerville in September, Mrs Philocrites and I have had to re-register to vote at our new address. I filled out a voter registration form while waiting for a bus in Davis Square one evening in mid-September, and brought another form home for my wife to fill out. She walked hers over to City Hall a week or so later, but I gave mine back to the guy who was registering voters in Davis Square. Here's the catch: My wife has received confirmation of her registration, but I have not. So tomorrow — the last day to register to vote in this November's election — I'll be one of the last-minute Somervilleans at City Hall filling out my form. Again.
When I called about this earlier today, City Hall told me that it isn't unusual for independent voter registration drives to turn in all their forms at the last minute. While I'm still peeved at the thought that I'll be submitting duplicate registrations, I'd be livid if the form I filled out was never submitted at all.
