Monday is Deadline to Register to Vote

Citizens were reminded their last chance to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election is Monday, Oct. 22

The deadline to register to vote in order to cast a ballot in the Nov. 6 general election is Monday, Oct. 22.

Temecula residents are asked to vote for city council members, yes or no on Measure Y for schools, their choice for president of the U.S., candidates for statewide public offices, and state initiatives.

Applications submitted online at RegisterToVote.ca.gov prior to midnight Monday will be honored, as will paper forms postmarked by the deadline. Paper applications are available at the Riverside County Registrar of Voters, Department of Motor Vehicle offices, post offices, public libraries and other locations, the Riverside County Registrar of Voters said Wednesday in a news release.

The Registrar’s office, 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside, will be open until midnight Monday to accept registration forms. Because the forms contain personal information, and to help ensure they are received on time, the Registrar of Voters encourages voters to personally deliver or mail completed forms to the registrar’s office, while keeping the deadline in mind.

California residents may register to vote if they are U.S. citizens, at least 18 years old by Election Day, not adjudicated as mentally incompetent and not precluded because of certain criminal convictions. A person must re-register to vote after moving, changing names or changing political party preference.

For more information, contact the Registrar of Voters Office at 951-486-7200.

The original targets of the Ku Klux Klan were Republicans, both black and white, The Democrats started the KKK and for decades harassed the GOP with lynchings and threats. An estimated 3,446 blacks and 1,297 whites died at the end of KKK ropes from 1882 to 1964. The documentation has been assembled by David Barton in his book "Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black & White," which reveals that not only did the Democrats work hand-in-glove with the Ku Klux Klan for generations, they started the KKK and endorsed its mayhem. "Republicans often led the efforts to pass federal anti-lynching laws and their platforms consistently called for a ban on lynching. Democrats successfully blocked those bills and their platforms never did condemn lynchings." "Although it is relatively unreported today, historical documents are unequivocal that the Klan was established by Democrats and that the Klan played a prominent role in the Democratic Party," Barton writes in his book. "In fact, a 13-volume set of congressional investigations from 1872 conclusively and irrefutably documents that fact. "The Klan terrorized black Americans through murders and public floggings; relief was granted only if individuals promised not to vote for Republican tickets, and violation of this oath was punishable by death," he said. "Since the Klan targeted Republicans in general, it did not limit its violence simply to black Republicans; white Republicans were also included."
