"I moved to Texas 26 years ago and have never had a single vote for president count. I have often felt like not voting at all. I wish we had an Electoral College change like Colorado is talking about. It is just not fair. My son is a 17 year old senior who will not not turn 18 before the presidential election. He has done nothing but complain about not being able to vote. He is a Kerry supporter. I haven't told him that his vote wouldn't count anyway. I don't want to possibly make him lose interest in voting in the future. He tells me that announcing that he is a Kerry supporter at school gets him ridiculed and attacked. I was very thankful to have heard about votepair.org this morning. It gives me some hope and I will certainly be passing this information on to others who feel as helpless as I do. Tired of being left out of the process."

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.
