"Although we didn't win the national election, my VotePair partner shared with me his success in winning a local smart growth initiative in his community. That was the only time I smiled all day."

How It Works
First, strategic voters enter their state and voting preference. They are then told whether they are voting in a swing state, where the race is close, or a secure state, where wide margins of victory are predicted for either Bush or Kerry.
Voters who register with VotePair will be paired with another participant via email. In this way, a swing state voter whose first choice is Nader, Cobb or Badnarik and a secure state voter whose first choice is Kerry can communicate with each other about strategic voting in the upcoming election. Pairing will facilitate dialogue and provide an opportunity for partners to make sure that their pairing partner is pledging in good faith.
