'Get out the Vote' rally at Miami U.

Tonight's hockey game between Miami and Ohio State universities, at Steve Cady Ice Arena in Oxford also will be the site of a "get out the vote rally."

The rally begins at 5:30 p.m. The hockey game starts two hours later.

Erik Smith, a Miami U. graduate working with the Ohio Public Interest Research Group's New Voters Project, said the aim is to mobilize students in advance so politicians "will pay attention to our issues. We really want to break the cycle of neglect."

Smith said youth organizers will be working around the clock in advance of Tuesday's presidential primary election to remind students to cast their votes.

Students leaders from the Miami University Associated Student Government will ask classmates to sign a pledge to vote, "showcasing old fashion grassroots peer-to-peer contact to mobilize students to the polls for the primary and beyond,'' Smith said.

The "get out the vote crowd",aka moveon.org is responsible for the rebirth of the SDS in Washington.
This group is responsible for the blocking and trashing of a US Marine recruting station in DC last month.

Great! Rich kids who have never worked and had to pay taxes. They vote for every give-away because they think it's free.
To bad, they have to learn the hard way like I did.
Been there, done that.
