Rock The Vote

Have you voted yet? What are you waiting for?

(Well other than the polls to open?)

A great organization called Rock The Vote uses music, culture and technology to engage and persuade young people to vote. They give young people the tools to learn about the issues that will affect them and the information to make their own decision on how to vote.

"Rock the Vote’s mission is to engage and build the political power of young people in order to
achieve progressive change in our country.

people to register and vote in every election. And we give young people the tools to identify,

and pride ourselves on being a trusted source for information on politics. We empower the 45
million young people in America who want to step up, claim their voice in the political process,

registering 2 million young people. Together with our partners, we are charged and excited to

Our goals for 2008:
 Register, educate, and turnout young voters at record levels to increase voter registration.

give both communities the tools to take action.
 Fight for the rights of young people in the voting process and for the issues that affect
their lives.
 Lay the foundation for a sustainable organization that can continue to leverage the power
of young people for long-term political and social change." (from
