Despite the day’s light rains, thousands of people are standing patiently in line to vote around Chapel Hill and Raleigh, North Carolina. Last night in Chapel Hill, more than 1500 door hangers got distributed to students and community members reminding them to use their civil liberties today and Get Out the Power Vote. UNC Asheville continues to Get Out the Power Vote by flyering the dorms with hundreds of Power VOTE door hangers and by partnering with other campus groups to direct people to the polls.

At NC State University, Energy Action Coalition Staff and the crew are talking with students

about the importance of voting and offering free, waste vegetable oil powered bus rides to the polling stations around campus. At UNC Chapel Hill, get out the vote coordinators have hired bicycle rickshaws to offer students climate friendly rides. It’s a similar story across the state and around the country. So many people are helping because so many of us realize how important this election is, how important it is for our voices to be heard and that now is the time to deliver a strong message to our representative’s that we are the force that will usher in a better way of doing things. We will not be silenced.

The power that our vote will have this election is going to be monumental! Don’t let a little rain stop you! We all need to do our parts today and every day to hold decision makers accountable for making sure the world is a better place.

Remember, a little rain never hurt anybody! Get out there and Power Vote!
