Hey American Meetup members,
The presidential race aside, there's a lot of important stuff to vote on here in the U.S. on November 6—stuff you may not have taken the time to make sense of yet.
To help solve this problem and cram for the big event, we're proposing a "Who and What the F*** Are We Voting For!?" Party.
The idea is simple:
Find a spot to have a party or gathering. Invite some friends. Study up and present on a ballot initiative or local race. During the party, everyone fills out the DIY Voter Guide we're providing, which you can bring to the polling booth as a cheat sheet. And we figured some drinking doesn't hurt, so we've got a simple drinking game you can follow along with too.
If you're into it...
check out our post on GOOD with links to the downloadable toolkit, DIY voter guides to print out, and some helpful resources for studying up. http://www.good.is/posts/who-and-what-the-f-are-we-voting...
Cheers! America is lucky to have citizens like you.
