"I never bothered to register since a vote for Kerry here in Texas is totally futile. No one should underestimate the power of this to increase voter participation. I'm not the only one that doesn't bother to even register because of the Electoral College. I hope that if this progresses far enough, we can show how stupid the Electoral College is and eventually get rid of it. Keep up the good work."

Votepair.org is an exciting joint effort of 20 progressive political activists from across the spectrum and the country. It includes nearly all of the operators of the major vote pairing websites in 2000, including Nader Trader, WinWincampaign.org, Voteexchange2000.com, voteexchange.org and votetrader.org. Through these and other sites, at least 36,000 people, including more than 1,400 in Florida, participated--and we hope they all come back this year and bring their friends. The organizers of votepair.org include Democrats, Greens, and independents. Votepair.org does not receive money from, or give money to, any presidential candidate's campaign.
