hey i'm interested in doing voter registration in the northeast.  I work out between clinton and remington and all the people i pass don't look like they vote.  Do you happen to know if there is anything i have to do (i.e. certifications, trainings), in order to do that?  I'd also want to know find out where the voting districts are.  Any county offices i should be in contact with?
