(CNN) – Tuesday is the last day for residents of several states, including a number of key electoral battlegrounds, to register to vote.

Voters in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan have until Tuesday to register by mail or in person. Other states with cutoffs Tuesday are Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Utah, Texas, New Mexico and Montana.

In Utah, voters will still be able to register in person and online, just not by mail.

Both campaigns have been working overtime to register voters in states like Ohio and Colorado, which are considered up for grabs in November's election.

    Where are all the far left kooks objecting that people should be able to register on the day of the election, right up until one hour before the polls close??? I mean that way people could vote 5, 10, 20 times as they drive from town to town. Just more voter suppression right?

    Obama tried to rush through the vote ... before Americans might be swayed by the debates ... but, just one debate has shifted the lead to Mitt Romney. It appears that Obama's sleazy campaign tactics are not working. thank God ... and, Good Riddance to Obama ... and, his corrupt administration.

  14. DEMOCRATS ARE IN FACT THE BIGGEST TAX CHEATS AROUND. Timothy Geithner THE PERFECT EXAMPLE.

    Actress Stacey Dash was attacked with negative tweets after voicing her support of Mitt Romney on Twitter over the weekend. Many comments were racially charged and others suggested the star of the 1990s hit 'Clueless' should just "kill herself."
    **************]
    This is in fact how hateful democrats really are.

    Wow, Truth, just wow. How about we voted for President Obama because Bush screwed up so bad, we just didn't want to give the GOP another crack at finishing the destruction. The thking people of this country STILL don't want to give the GOP another crack at destroying America. Heck, GOPers can't even add and subtract. Have you listened to that Ryan idiot?

    No liars or tax cheats, this is a serious world, requiring serious thoughts before action, mitt has no business being on a global political venue, he will be a disaster, no doubt. another war anyone, might be why he wants the job, seen how much haliburton made, nevermind your kisd dying for oil. trust me, ts for your own good

    I firmly believed that people voted for Obama in 2008 because the republican party lied us into war, kept the two unfunded wars, TARP, the drug programs, the tax cuts all off the books, and left us with 8 million jobs lost in the last three years of Bush. Obama took care of bin Laden, saved the auto industry, brought housing back, created 5.1 million jobs in 31 months, got us out of Iraq, brought women equal pay, and all without a single republican vote.
