We’re Nominated For A Golden Dot!
Tuesday, March 17th, 2009
I just got back from South by Southwest in Austin and found out some great news!
Why Tuesday? has been nominated for a “Golden Dot Award” by the George Washington University Institute for Politics, Democracy and the Internet!
The Golden Dot Awards recognize achievement in online politics. To be eligible, nominees must have used the Internet to try to influence the political process between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2008. We are nominated for Best Vlog for our work trying to find solutions to increase voter participation and turnout in our elections — and you can help us win!
Nominees must have campaigned, organized, created political media, or conducted advocacy online. The Golden Dot Awards are decided by a combination of the popular voter and a panel of judges. Winners will be announced on Thursday, April 16, and the winners will be honored at the 2009 Politics Online Conference (April 20 – 21).
Believe it or not, voter turnout in 2008 was NOT an all time record, and only 1.6% higher than in 2004! Thanks to you, we continue to make election reform an issue our politicians cannot afford to avoid.
