Hey all,

For those who don’t know, there are text messages and facebook messages and status updates telling people that “due to heavy turnout, Obama voters (or in some texts/updates, Democrats and Independents) should vote on Wednesday.”

Please activate your networks to push back on these messages. Voting ends today. Stick it out, stay in line, etc.

In addition, we would like to put out a statement asking the media to condemn voter suppression. Please respond no later than 4:45 if your group wants to sign on:

“Voter suppression affects everyone, but in particular young voters and minorities. National youth leaders are calling on the media to set the record straight: voting ends today. Any text messages, emails, phone calls, or flyers that say otherwise are only intended to suppress votes. It is our civic responsibility to make sure every vote counts.”
