Make the peace voter a powerful political force

VotersForPeace Marquee


Dear Peace Voter,

The mission of Voters for Peace is to make the peace voter as powerful a political force as possible in the United States. As part of that goal Voters for Peace is participating in an election year effort entitled "Peace Impact."

Peace Impact involves eight anti-war, pro-peace organizations that are involved in voter engagement efforts in a coordinated way. We want to make the peace vote as large as possible in this election year. This is a non-partisan effort, we are not urging people to vote for any particular political candidate, but instead are working to expand the peace vote.

The first step is to make sure that peace voters are registered. We have created a website to make registration easier. Please visit: https://electionimpact3.votenet.com/peaceimpact/voterreg2/index.cfm and register today. Many states have deadlines this weekend so if you have not registered do so now.

Next steps in this process will be to urge people to get out and vote. You will hear more about that as Election Day gets closer.

Please share this email with people in your local peace groups, friends, relatives or colleagues and urge them to register today as well.

Sincerely,

Kevin Zeese

Voters for Peace

P.S. We have also been working to amend the bailout so it provides more support for the foundation of the economy and is not just a bailout of Wall Street. For updates on that please visit our parent organization website, the Campaign for Fresh Air & Clean Politics at www.FreshAirCleanPolitics.net.

Take the VotersForPeace Pledge! "I will only vote for or support federal candidates who make a speedy end to the war in Iraq, and preventing any future war of aggression, a public position in his or her campaign."


VotersForPeace is a nonpartisan organization that does not support or oppose candidates for office.
