Hello everyone, I just wanted to encourage everyone to take an interest in politics this year. We have a huge election coming up and there are issues being addressed in this election that impact everyone who lives in the United States. Even if you don't have voting eligibility that doesn't mean that your opinions and your voice can't be heard. There are many ways for voters and non-voters alike to become involved in the political process.
Get involved. Watch the debates, learn about the candidates, decide where you stand on the issues. Then make a difference. Hundreds of thousands of volunteers are supporting each campaign and you can join those volunteers! Volunteers do everything from hanging signs, going door to door, making phone calls, passing out literature, and attending events!
Here is where you can register to volunteer for the McCain/Palin campaign : http://www.gop.com/Secure/?Type=S2
Her is where you can register to volunteer for the Obama/Biden campaign: http://action.barackobama.com/page/s/volunteer/
For everyone who is eligible to vote, please do! If you aren't registered to vote, you only have a few more weeks. The deadline to register to vote in California is October 20th
It is so easy to register to vote and just takes a couple minutes. Go to www.maps.google.com/vote
and type in your address. The website will then list all the information you need to register to vote in the 2008 election. Don't put this off, it only takes a few minutes.
Are you currently a registered voter? Have you ever volunteered for a campaign? If so, tell us about it!
