Some VERY useful VOTING Information.

Can you believe it? Election Day is finally, FINALLY here!

There are a lot of people out there who support Barack Obama but still aren't sure how, when, or where to vote. It's more common than you think—some of the people who have questions are probably your friends or coworkers.

So we've compiled all the info people need to vote, below. Not just where to go, but also what to do if there's a problem.

Moveon.org's aiming to get this out to 200,000 voters by 10 a.m. Please forward this email to everyone you knowand then click
here to tell them how many people you sent it to so they can track the impact together.

Thanks, in advance!
Election 2008 Voting Information:

Today, November 4th, is Election Day! Remember to vote—not just for
Barack Obama, but for Congressional, state, and local candidates as well. IMPORTANT NOTE: In New York, you can vote Obama on the Working Families line (Row E). Barack Obama will appear on your ballot twice in New York—first under the Democratic Party, and then again .. E, the ballot line of New York's growing progressive third party. Voting for Barack Obama on the Working Families Party line counts exactly the same for the presidential race—and it also strengthens one of the most important efforts in the country to push Democrats to be more bold and progressive.
