Review Roundup: January 18th - 29th · 10:22pm Jan 31st, 2016

Since the Iowa caucuses start tomorrow, this seems like a good time to remind all of you who 1) are U.S. citizens, and 2) are over 18, or will be by November: don't forget to get registered to vote! This site can help you out with telling if you're registered, and finding out how to fix that if you aren't. And don't forget to vote in your primary or attend your caucus; if you're not sure when to vote, check here.
