I recently read in GOOD Magazine that some ridiculous percentage of college students said they would give up their right to vote for an Apple Ipod Touch. Ouch.
Then I received a newsletter from the Ford Foundation that included the incredible chart below (don't let the list length full you - the USA is number 139 in voter participation). Ouch.
On the other hand, we've seen incredible increases in voter registration in the US this year, unprecedented turnout in the primaries, and enduring interest in the longest Presidential campaign ever. So make the most of it. Get out and vote. Share your experiences and observations of the process via twitter - as part of the new and cool twittervotereport project. It is a right and a responsibility. Please vote.
