As 3OH!3 we’ve always been interested in making fun, inclusive music that pushes and challenges boundaries, presents something novel, and hopefully has some small, lastingimpact on a piece of the music world. We’ve also been interested in using the social platform we have to try to make the world around us a better place. One of the most important and impactful ways we think we can do this is by encouraging young people to vote, and to be active in shaping the world around them.
As a young person, we would ask you to educate yourself about the important issues being debated. Think about how they will affect not only you and your family, but also the people around you, your town, your state, your country, and the world as a whole. As our society develops and evolves, it is evermore important to foster intelligent and educated debate about the issues that affect us all.
We proudly participated in a “Trick or Vote” Halloween 2008 voting campaign. It was wonderful to see young people excited and motivated by the prospects of having their voices heard. We will continue to stay active in this field. I believe that as young people, once we have educated ourselves, we have the most powerful tools a citizen in our society can have: a voice and a vote. As America’s youth, we have the power to decide how we will conduct ourselves domestically and globally, and shape the future of our nation. That’s a very important and a very wonderful thing – please take advantage of that power and vote!
