"I believe in coalition politics, which is why I have always, in the past, voted straight Democratic. Democrats represent the coalition that includes left and center. I am also basically a bleeding heart liberal of the first order, a First Amendment absolutist and an environmentalist. In some governmental systems I would naturally be a Green. The most valuable contribution Greens can make is to exert some pressure on the Democrats not to be ignored as the Dems struggle to get voters from the middle. The perfect solution, it seems to me, is to vote Democrat where it counts, in swing states, and Green in other states to send a message."

How You Can Help

  • Send an op-ed or letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Most papers have websites that provide submission guidelines and information on where to send it; just search by the newspaper's name, or you can check out the US Newspaper List (USNPL) for a state-by-state listing.
  • Spread the word about the importance of strategic voting in 2004. You can download a flyer (Swing State Flyer | Safe State Flyer | | Determine Your State's Status) and hand it out at local election-related events like candidate appearances, political symposia, demonstrations, and rallies.
  • Place an ad about VotePair.org in a local or university newspaper or on popular websites. (Swing State Ad | Safe State Ad | Determine Your State's Status). If you don't have funds to place a newspaper display ad like one of these, you can also place a classified ad, using just the ad text.
  • Donate to VotePair. We're a volunteer-run effort, but your contribution will help pay for much-needed outreach, media, and marketing efforts, and defray some operational costs (like this Web site).
  • Talk to the media. Reporters are always interested in a local 'hook' to make stories relevant to their readers. If you'd be willing to talk to reporters about why you support the vote-pairing effort and believe in the need for progressives to unite in 2004, contact media@votepair.org with your name, city/state of residence, and best way (phone or email) to contact you.
  • Share your connections. If you know a celebrity or other national figure who might help promote vote pairing, write to media@votepair.org.
  • Invite a friend, colleague, or relative to check out votepair.org and consider pairing his/her vote.
  • Host a border party. Border Parties bring together voters from neighboring swing and safe states for dialogue, strategizing, and fun.
