Fantastic new app called Vote with Me for getting your friends/contacts to vote:
Truly worth checking out! From their site:
We know, asking your friends to do things is awkward. That’s why it is so much more powerful than talking to strangers.
We’ve done the science and found that messages from friends are about twenty times more effective at encouraging voter turnout than other common methods.
You may have seen similar apps before, but you haven’t seen this one. We don’t force you to register with us or with any other group. We don’t put you on an email list, because we don’t have one. The app contains no ads, and we never ask you to donate money.
Extra, extra, read all about it!
