Students who are registered to vote on or prior to October 9, 2012, are eligible for five points of extra credit. To get the credit, bring a photocopy of your voter registration card to class and give it to Dr. Halbert. Feel free to block your party affiliation: the goal is to know you are registered, not your party affiliation. Information about registering to vote in Montgomery County can be found here:

Students eligible to vote in other areas can also get this extra credit. If you are unregistered, you will need to search your city or county's registrar of voters to get more information. My apologies to students who are not eligible to vote.

Possible Points: 5 points
Due Date: October 10, 2012 (if you register on the 9th but don't have card in hand, email Dr. Halbert for instructions)


While being registered to vote is great, it's pretty useless unless you actually vote. To encourage voting, I will give five points of extra credit to any student of mine who votes (regardless of who you vote for, which is none of my business). To get credit, take a picture of yourself in front of your voting place, preferably in front of the giant sample ballot that should be on display. Email the photograph to me and claim your extra credit. If you vote by absentee ballot, bring the stamped ballot to me before you vote. Remember: Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2012.

Possible points: 5 points
Due Date: November 7, 2012
