Just a quick reminder to everyone, if you have already voted please log back into your account and make sure your vote has actually registered with the site. Once you are logged in click the DREAM Act idea and the vote box should be red, if the vote box is blue then you have not yet voted.

Jon, the creator of the FISA idea - which we endorse and urge everyone to vote for ( http://www.change.org/ideas/view/get...ivil_liberties ) - gave us the above suggestion. He said they were able to get a pretty good surge in votes by getting people to double check their vote.

Thanks all and now a message from Kyle of Citizenorange:
It's the last day to vote for the DREAM Act at Change.Org.

http://www.change.org/ideas/view/pass_the_dream_act_now

I'm assuming most of you have voted already and have asked all your friends to vote, so the best thing to do now, is to try and use new media tools to get tens of thousands of new eyes on this by tomorrow evening. I've written up a post over at Citizen Orange, and if folks can digg, stumble, reddit, and mixx my post we'll get lots of eyes on this. We should go through a blog though so we can monitor traffic and cut it off it get hijacked by nativists.

Here's my post:
<http://www.citizenorange.com/orange/2009/01/vote-for-the-dream-act-on-chan.html>

Vote it up using these three tools:
<http://digg.com/political_opinion/Help_The_Voiceless_Speak_Vote_DREAM_Act_at_Change_Org>
<http://www.reddit.com/r/reddit.com/comments/7ps3r/help_the_voiceless_speak_vote_for_the_dream_act/>
<http://www.mixx.com/stories/3475887/help_the_voiceless_speak_vote_for_the_dream_act_over_at_change_org>

I've been the most successful with StumbleUpon so if you could go to, http://www.stumbleupon.com, install the toolbar, and vote it up there, that would be awesome. Each thumbs up you give directs at least a few hundred new eyes to a post.

If you don't know what all of these tools are, you should. It's one of the ways we're going to outsmart the nativists. Hope all is well.

Much Love,
Kyle

I seriously don't understand why "Legalize the use of marijuana" is in first place with 2,500+ votes in the first voting day.. I have nothing against the issue itself but it almost makes me doubt this website. Who honestly thinks Obama's going to consider this issue? Even with the attention it's getting.
