Vote, dammit, vote

Do You Remember Your First Time?

No, not THAT first time! The first time you cast a ballot in an election.

Women's Voices, Women Vote has put together a great new ad campaign that starts running today — and I absolutely love it. From their website:

With Election Day just weeks away, Women's Voices. Women Vote. has released a new series of public service announcements featuring some of American's best known actresses encouraging women to vote.

Tyne Daly, Rosario Dawson, Lauren Graham, Angie Harmon, Marg Helgenberger, Felicity Huffman and Regina King have all contributed their considerable talents to the campaign….

Almost half (46 percent) of American women aren't married — and these "women on their own" are among the fastest growing large segments of our population. This new reality could transform the nation's politics, and there's a new kind of organization — Women's Voices. Women Vote. (WVWV) — working to get them to participate in our democracy.

Participation is a big part of the battle — and that feeling of empowerment that you can get when you understand that you not only want change, but that you can really work to make it happen…well, that's what we are ALL working toward, isn't it?

Please take some time to view the PSAs — and then pass them around to your friends, your family, your co-workers…anyone and everyone you think might benefit from a little kick in the behind to get up, get out there, and participate in this experiment that I like to call American democracy. We can't win if we don't get people out there and voting. This is a great way to get the word out to a whole lot of folks that we want to hear their voice, too.
