"As a progressive in Houston, Texas, I feel like I have no voice in this year's Presidential Election. I am participating in VotePair because I can vote for either Nader or Cobb with a clear conscience while increasing the impact of my decision that Bush MUST be defeated. By swapping my Kerry vote with a progressive third-party supporter in one of the battleground states I feel like I will be heard after all while ensuring that their voice in support of third party efforts stays audible too. Thank you VotePair."
