"Just wanted to leave a quick note thanking whoever started VotePair. I'm a democrat from TX and in past elections, going to the polls was extremely depressing. I always voted knowing that I was simply doing my duty but to no avail. Now, with votepair, I have renewed confidence that my vote will count... in Ohio of all places. I LOVE my VotePair partner!! She shares my values and hopes for our country. It's too bad that we have to go to all of this trouble just to get a fair election. The electoral vote definitely is an archaic system that needs to be abolished. Until that happens, I'll be votepairing every election. Thank you again for helping my vote count."

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.
