    Big issues are at stake next month in California's primary election.

    Don't you want to count? Then you'd better vote! And to do that, you need to register -- and if you've moved addresses or changed party affiliations, you need to re-register, according to reports.

    To register, you need to fill out a registration card and mail it in. Voter registration cards are available at county election offices, U.S. post offices and the Department of Motor Vehicles, or at www.sos.ca.gov/nvrc/fedform.

    "They must be signed and submitted in person or by mail," the San Jose Mercury News reported. "A mailed registration card postmarked today will satisfy the deadline."

    There's one exception to this rule, however: newly-sworn Unites States citizens may register and vote at the polls. Welcome to our democracy, fellas.

    The election is Tuesday, June 5.
