On Facebook? Got Your Vote On Yet?Posted October 30th, 2010 by Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner
Can you believe it’s nearly November already? And that Election Day is this coming Tuesday? Time flies. It seems like summer just ended, but now we’re entering into the final stretch of the election season. Believe or not, many folks are expected to forget that Tuesday is Election Day. So, we need your help getting the word out mom-to-mom that time has flown and that everyone should make sure they set aside a little time to vote before polls close this coming Tuesday, November 2nd.
*Check out this fun, unique way to share that you’ll be voting with all your friends on Facebook–and to remind your friends to vote by the time polls close this Tuesday night while you’re at it:
How does it work? If you’re on Facebook, you can click the link above and show that you’re voting by posting a picture of yourself with a virtual “I’m voting” sticker–and then invite your friends to do the same. Your picture will be posted to your Facebook wall for all of your friends to see, making it a powerful reminder to vote.
It’s super easy. Just follow the directions on the link. This is a fun way to send a serious message and get folks motivated. Times are tough, and families are hurting. The 2010 midterm elections are important. In the coming months, Congress is poised to make decisions about whether or not to extend unemployment insurance benefits, whether to continue moving forward with new provisions which make it illegal for insurance companies to deny coverage for people with preexisting conditions, and whether we will invest in families struggling to make ends meet or instead spend massive amounts on tax breaks for the wealthy.
Our easy-to-use Facebook application can add an “I’m voting” sticker on a photo of you, post this picture to your Facebook wall, and invite your friends to do the same if you so choose. Together, we can reach a lot of people. The average Facebook user has 130 friends. If even a few of your friends follow your lead and remind their Facebook friends to vote by putting a virtual “I’m voting” sticker to a picture, and a few of their friends follow suit, then your quick action could result in thousands of people being reminded to vote.
You can make a critical difference in getting out the vote!
Don’t forget to share that you’re voting–and remind your friends to vote–by showing off your “I’m voting” sticker on Facebook now:
Thanks for spreading the word!
