Ke$ha says Voting is Hot!
That year I did a lot in the community to get people to vote. We set-up booths at festivals and concerts to register voters; for each election we would 'hit the streets' on popular intersections around town to promote and encourage voting; we researched, wrote and published local-level voter guides that helped educate on all the ballot options; we threw rad parties. And that's how Ke$ha found me and became a volunteer. Along with all of our amazing volunteers and board members, she was passionate about getting people to vote. Telling people to use their voice at the polling station. Just four years later Ke$ha is a superstar, I am blessed to be surrounded with creativity and community as one of the leaders in America's buy local/maker movement, and it's time to vote for President again.
YOUR VOICE MATTERS. How this city, state and country develops is up to us. Socialized healthcare, support for small businesses, better public education, new transportation ideas, support for the arts, grants and loans for American manufacturing - these are all things I care about but unless I vote, my opinions are mute. I have no right to complain about things like being denied health coverage from insurers (I'm one of those unlucky folks to have a pre-existing condition) or how bad the traffic is if I haven't voted.
This November I hope you'll use your voice and vote for what you believe in, for the things that matter to you. If you aren't registered, do it now by clicking the button below.
