In my state, on your driver's license, you can choose to be a organ donor.
This helps speed the process.

Why so many people refuse to do this, I don't understand.
You also need to inform your spouse or family. I'm pretty sure they still have the final say. My mom and I hosted an event at my parent's church where we signed people up after church and put stickers on their driver's licenses but I think my mom said the spouse/next of kin still has the final say.

The majority of people that did not sign up said they thought they were already too old or had too many problems and their organs wouldn't be of any use. Not sure if that's true or not, but we encouraged them to sign up anyway.
