Rock the Vote and Motorola have joined forces to bring you Rock the Vote Mobile!
This campaign revolutionizes how the wireless generation is involved in the presidential election process and the political scene. Our goal is to mobilize 20 million 18-30-year-olds on Election Day — and to keep them informed, involved and engaged in the months ahead.
Rock the Vote Mobile is the result of a ground-breaking partnership. Rock the Vote’s tireless efforts to inspire the younger generation to vote combined with Motorola’s legacy of influencing pop culture through technology will enable young Americans to make their voices heard … like never before! With this campaign, mobile Americans can voice their opinions, stay up-to-date on important political news, and get the tools necessary to become informed and active citizens.
Consider the following facts:
In the 2000 U.S. Presidential elections, 5 states were decided by fewer than 8,000 votes.
The night before the March 2004 elections in Spain, the spread of text messaging mobilized some thousands of people who congregated in front of the political party running the country, Partido Popular, in just a couple of hours.
Filipinos, reputed to be the fastest texters in the world, organized the world’s first political revolution by mobile in 2001. Titled “People Power II,” the SMS messaging effort took place over five days, resulting in so much political activation that the government of President Joseph Estrada was overthrown.
Mobile phones have the power to drive civic involvement and your empowerment — anytime, anywhere. So what are you waiting for?
It’s in YOUR hands. Literally.
So speak up … stay connected … and be sure you and your friends get to the polls on November 2 to make history!
