I got a call this week from a reader who said he found out he and three members of his family were no longer on the voting rolls. That means they couldn't vote in the Nov. 6 election unless they re-registered.

And so I paid attention when I got an email Friday from The League of Women Voters of New Mexico, whose site included a section on voter registration. It says those who have not voted since the 2008 election and do not vote in this year's will have their names purged from voter rolls in 2015.

And the site advises people to know their voting status by checking with the county clerk's office or click this link www.sos.state.nm.us.

If you go to that link, you will get a VoterView box. Hit the "search your voter registration information" and then fill in the boxes with your name, birth date and county.

I  did. And, yes, I am registered to vote. The info included my voting history since I moved to Taos.

My advice is to check your status. Oct. 9 is the last day to register, and this election's too important not to vote.
