Yes, registering to vote does take a few minutes, and can seem like it takes away from other fun activities, but it can truly be a pretty painless process.
First, it's important, especially here in Ohio where thousands have recently been purged from the voter rolls, that you confirm your status as a registered voter. If you're no longer registered you can sign up and even update your address online at the Cuyahoga County website.
The Ohio primary is Tuesday, March 17, aka St. Patrick's Day. Scene highly recommends voting before heading downtown for all the festivities. The day is also Super Tuesday and will most likely determine the Democratic nominee for president.
