Trick out the Vote in the South!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays: candy, costumes, and in 2010, democracy!

Hundreds of student and community groups around the South are planning Trick or Vote events, with a simple but powerful idea: taking advantage of the one day per year where people expect you to knock on their doors! It’s critical that our generation turn out in record numbers at the polls again like we did in 2008. Holding a Trick or Vote event is an incredibly fun way you can get people out to the polls on November 2nd!

This year, nothing is more important than getting young people out to vote. Scary Oil and Ghastly Coal are haunting the political system by pumping millions of dollars into the election, trying to keep their power in Congress. Luckily, we have people power on our side, and the power of our generation will only grow in this decade. We need to go to the polls sending a strong message to our decision makers: people over polluters and profits.

Come up with a great costume idea, gather several friends, and spend a few hours this weekend fighting off dirty energy’s forces of destruction. You can find a ton of resources, register your event, or find one in your area here:http://act.energyactioncoalition.org/p/salsa/event/common/public/create.sjs?distributed_event_KEY=604.

Feel free to contact one of SEN’s organizers (http://www.climateaction.net/about/staff) with questions.

Happy Halloween!

P.S. Remember to take tons of pictures, tag them with #trickorvote, #powervote, and #southernenergy when you upload them to Flickr or other photo sharing websites. If you upload photos to Facebook, tag @Southern Energy Network in the description and we’ll find them.
