Most people are interested in the election for U.S. president.

Preparation has been ongoing for so long, and we’ve sorted through so many candidates, that it almost is a surprise to find the big day is upon us.

Some Americans will be choosing a person to lead the nation on Nov. 6.

We say “some” because only those who are registered to vote by Sunday at midnight will be allowed to vote.

That’s the voter registration deadline to be eligible to vote in the general election.

Registration forms are easily available, at municipal clerks’ offices, at the Division of Motor Vehicles, at the library and, of course, at the Division of Elections offices in Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Mat-Su and Nome.

The forms also are available online at www.elections.alaska.gov.

And once filled out, they can be returned by mail, fax or email to elections@alaska.gov. (You can find the fax number for the Division of Elections offices at http://www.elections.alaska.gov/csm_contact_reo.php.

It could hardly be easier, but the window closes at midnight Sunday.

Don’t miss your chance to vote for U.S. president. Check your registration now, just in case.
