Check-In on Election Day

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

The screen capture below shows that we really do have the power when we all stick together. Foursquare, the location-based social networking site, agreed this morning to give its users “I Voted” badges on this coming Election Day after an act.ly petition showed how broad the public support for this simple act of civic participation was.


Congrats to Foursquare, petition-starter Jordan Raynor, and act.ly creator Jim Gilliam for making a move on a truly noble cause. Now, if only we could petition the 50% of Americans who don’t vote.
