Rock the Vote - pledge to vote

On Wednesday, I flew out to California to attend the last debates before Super Tuesday. While the candidates sparred inside, young people rallied outside. We got some great press attention for the youth vote that night, but it's nothing compared to what we can do next with your help.

Tomorrow, 22 states are holding elections -- one day that could determine both parties' nominations. Today I need your help to show the media that this momentous election is being decided by young people. Please sign our Pledge to Pick the Prez today:

Chrissy Faessen, Rock the Vote's Communications Director, is working on our press release about the youth vote for Super Tuesday. 10,000 of you signed our pledge last week. It's a great item for us to include in our press, but I told her that we can double that number. So, she agreed to wait, but the absolute latest we can send it out is midnight tonight. Can you invite 5 friends to sign the pledge before then?

There is a real movement of young people happening. We picked the winner in the early primary contests, and we are changing the face of politics. Let’s keep it up.

Rock on,
Heather Smith
Executive Director, Rock the Vote

PS. If you need help finding your primary/caucus date or polling location, take a look at our primary/caucus info page.

PPS. The media has already started pay attention to us. Check out "The Year of the Youth Vote" in Time Magazine.
