To all the first-time voters in the 2008 election: Rock the Vote and over 30 youth organizations want you to vote again in 2010! Check out voteagain2010.com to hear from your peers on issues you care about and learn how you can get involved. You can even tell your friends to vote again in 2010 right there on the site.
Sara Haile-Mariam, a communications and outreach associate at Campus Progress, really believes in the idea behind the new website.
Here’s what Sara had to say about Voteagain2010.com:
This site will make the case for midterm participation based on a simple truth, While members of Congress have the power to vote for or against legislation– we have the power to vote for or against every one of them. That’s a power that we can’t let go to waste… which is why we must vote again in 2010.
