Big Bird wants you to vote !

Big Bird wants you to vote!
Not for himself/herself.  But for all of his friends on Sesame street. 
We have reached a critical point in this election season and your vote is important- but first you must be registered.  If you are registered- make certain that all your friends on Facebook are also registered.
I , like you, receive up to 6 e mails per day from the Obama campaign asking for money.  This message asks that you contact your friends.
In 2008 the election was close and Obama won.   In 2010 students stayed home and the Tea Party won.  For example, Ohio’s student voter participation dropped from 69 % to 22 %,  Wisconsin’s from 66 % to 19 percent, and Florida’s from 61 % to 19%.
The result was a strong conservative take over of these states and devastating cuts to schools, child care, police protection and social services.  And now Mitt Romney wants to cut Big Bird.
We need a Yes vote on Prop. 30 to fund our schools and universities. http://www.yesonprop30.com
We need each of you  to copy this message, or write your own.  Send it to all your Friends on Face book.
You may be registered, but chances are 20 -40% of your friends are not- or they have moved since the last election and need to re register.  For California residents the final day to register is October 22,2012.
The voter registration application is at RegisterToVote.ca.gov.
The last day to register to vote for the November 6 general election is October 22.
For those outside of California there are a number of on line ways to register.  Here is one. http://vote.barackobama.com/en/?choose-state=true
Please take this action today.  There is much to discuss on the election.  There are good posts on why  you and your friends  should register at can the Progressive Alliance at www.sacramentopa.blogspot.com
