With the primary election just over one month away, on May 20, voters must register by April 21 to have their vote counted in the 2008 primary election.
The primary ticket is very short with no local election on the ballot. Voters will select a presidential candidate for their party and the party candidate for the United Sates Senator's race.
The Democratic Party will have two candidates to chose from in the United States Representative for Congress race.
Voters do not need to reregister unless their personal information has recently changed.
Teenagers who will turn 18 on or before the November general election may also register and vote in the primary.
