Not gonna lie: trying to figure out the registration dates for the upcoming Republican primaries is a hot mess. It’s democrazy! So we wanted to give y’all the low-down on the upcoming deadlines. (South Carolinians be on the lookout: your deadline is December 21!)

+ Iowa Caucus: January 3, 2012
Registration Deadline: January 3, 2012

Iowa’s process for selecting the GOP candidate is not your stand-in-line, get-a-sticker voting situation that happens at standard primaries. This old-school “gathering of neighbors” is a hands-on democratic event — and as the first presidential caucus in the country, Iowans take a lot of pride in it.

If you reside in this heartland state and wanna have a hand in picking out which GOP heavyweight takes on President Obama, you can go to your local precinct location on the day of the caucus — January 3rd, 2012 — to register as a Republican voter (if you haven’t done so already).

So you have no excuse not to vote in this historic caucus ruckus because you can literally show up and participate!

Still confused? There’s an app for that! Also, Rock the Vote created a special Rock The Caucus site just for Iowa. Woot woot!

+ New Hampshire Primary: January 10, 2012
Registration Deadline: Donzo (October 14, 2011)

Oh you didn’t hear that the deadline to participate in the first official GOP primary in the entire country was October 14? What rock have you been living under? Do you even know who Justin Bieber is?!

Just kidding, y’all — the broadcasting of this info seems like a total #FAIL to us since you can hardly find anything on the interwebz that was blasting this deadline other than really enthusiastic Ron Paul blogs.

Sorry, New Hampshire!

+ South Carolina Primary:January 21, 2012
Registration Deadline: December 21, 2012

Yo dirty south! You got two days to get your GOP butt registered so you can throw down your ticket choice for the presidential contender in the Palmetto State– so git on it!

+ Florida Primary: January 31, 2012
Registration Deadline: January 3, 2012

Spread some Sunshine State love for the democratic process and go rep your fav Republican on January 31 — just make sure you don’t party so hard on NYE that you forget to register by January 3.

+ Missouri Primary: February 7, 2012
Registration Deadline: January 11, 2012

It’s the Show-Me State -– so you better show up and cast your GOP vote. You got plenty of time to get registered, so don’t miss(ouri) out! Har har.

P.S. Mad props to Mizz for having one of the best state voting sites we’ve seen.

Aight, that’s the dealio for upcoming GOP deadlines — we’ll keep ya informed as more approach. If you want more state-by-state deets, check out Rock the Vote’s Electionland – and yet again, we have to applaud those rowdy Ron Paul supporters because they’ve put together a pretty comprehensive calendar for the upcoming primaries. Power to the people!
