Announcing: I VOTE NY!
Time to take back our state! We all know plenty of New Yorkers who are not happy with the dire situation here and have even talked about moving.
Various upstate and western New York civic, educational groups are coming together for an historic VOTER REGISTRATION drive right here in our backyard. (see below for carpool details).
In 2010, voter turnout was 32.1% of eligible voters, and only about 4.65 million of the 13.4 million people eligible to vote actually went to the polls to vote for the next governor. That's a window of opportunity. Source: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/11/16/new-york-state-ranks-last-for-voter-turnout/
