What If Everyone Could Vote?

We're inviting all youth, immigrants, ex-felons, people living outside of the U.S., to vote for president at www.ctwo.org/poll. Please help by participating in this vote and/ or passing it on to more people.
(please spread widely)


Dear Friends and Allies,

In the coming weeks we will be seeing more and more U.S. presidential poll results, especially about swing state voters. Lots of us are working hard to get our communities out to the polls and to protect the right to vote this fall. From voter registration, voter education, to demonstrations, lots of individuals and organizations are getting involved with good reason.

So much is on the line this election: the War in Iraq, healthcare, equal access to quality public education, attacks on civil rights, rising rates of poverty, privatization of public services, soaring salaries of corporate CEO's, the environment, reproductive rights, trade agreements, etc.

With so much at stake and with U.S. policy able to affect so many lives around the globe, shouldn't everybody get to vote for U.S. President?*

We're inviting all youth, immigrants, ex-felons, people living outside of the U.S., to vote for president at www.ctwo.org/poll. Please help by participating in this vote and/ or passing it on to more people.

In Solidarity,

*We know everyone doesn't have access to the web, but a great many people can get access through their organizations, schools, libraries, unions, community centers, etc.
*The ballot is in Spanish, Chinese, and English- we were unable to get other language translations in time.
* There's still time to get involved, volunteer to phone-bank, precinct walk or be an election observer. And of course if you are eligible, don't forget to vote on Nov.2!
