I'm all about that Face, bout that Face, No Twitter!

Possibly the most useful app on Facebook: DidTheyVote.org - Use it or lose it! Vote!

Q. What do you have that Monsanto doesn't have?

A. Facebook friends

That's right, you have the ability to be the best Get Out the Vote effort this world has ever seen, and it will just take you a minute.

Visit DidTheyVote.org

In under a minute, all of the friends you have on Facebook in Oregon (whose ballots have not yet been received by the elections office) will appear with the opportunity for you to send them a friendly, custom tailor-made message encouraging them to vote. And, my version has an extra kicker - encouraging them to encourage their friends via using the site.

For example:

Dear Wilma,

Have you voted yet? If not, I think the most important vote on the ballot is for our health - and that's a YES vote on Measure 92 to require labeling of GMOs in our food. I hope you will vote YES on 92 and then also take a moment and encourage your friends via DidTheyVote.org to do the same.

Thank you,

Your friend, Albert

Feel free to cut and paste this message into your own message to friends. Another example:

Hi there Fred,

If you haven't voted yet, please take a moment to vote yes on Measure 91 which will legalize recreational marijuana in Oregon. I hope you will vote YES on 91 and then also take a moment and encourage your friends via DidTheyVote.org to do the same.

Your friend, Albert

We have a short window of opportunity to make a huge, historical change in Oregon and the Country. We cannot outspend Monsanto, PepsiCo, Syngenta and the other multinational "food" companies. We suddenly have a very useful tool that can be used to counter their money on Measure 92. Let's use it!

PS: I have noticed that the results provided of who in your life hasn't voted yet, changes from day to day. Try returning to DidTheyVote.org more than once and see if someone new pops up.

Have stamps handy.

Know where the ballot drop-off stations are.

Last moment to get ballots to a drop box - 8 p.m on Election Day, November 4th

Now, get out there and let's get those ballots in!

P.S. A few friends and I put together ballot endorsements here

P.S.S. - Feel free to share a link to this article, widely!
