VOTE or NOT? should not be a question you ask yourselves this election. Ranking beautiful people may be fun, but choosing the next President or Congress is serious business — if you can participate, please do. If you’re eligible to vote but haven’t yet registered, register now. Then show that you plan to vote by joining the crazy contest from Jim and James at HotOrNot, who are giving away $200,000.
We want you, and every person that is eligible, to vote. This is something we feel passionate about. We know we’re just 2 guys, but we believe that 2 guys with a good idea who are willing to work hard and put their time and money where their mouths are can make a difference.
In a nutshell, we’re doing this because we care, and because we can. We also like the idea of doing this because nobody else has done it before, and we like to do crazy, new things.
Yes, it’s viral marketing, but it’s for a good cause. We need to raise voter participation beyond its past, dismal levels. If Jim and James can put up $200,000, the least we all can do is fill out their sign-in form and get to the polls (or absentee ballots, if you don’t trust your county’s electronic voting systems).
