ezs note:  This is all the more reason to register early.  If at all possible, go to the place where voters are registered, and explain your situation to them.  This is doubly important if you have moved, changed your gender, or even changed your looks.  If the election official looks crabby or complacent, ask for a written statement with their signature on it
