Make Every Vote Count

The Democratic National Committee has decided that the "first in the nation" status of New Hampshire and Iowa trumps participatory democracy, and is disenfranchising the voters of Florida and Michigan.

Voters in Florida  are being unfairly punished for wanting to have a voice in selecting our party's candidate for president. By refusing to seat these delegates, our party is shutting out almost one in ten Democratic voters from the primary process. This situation is unacceptable.

Tell Chairman Howard Dean and the DNC to stop behaving like the Bush campaign of 2000 and start empowering voters for change in 2008. Make every vote count, and let the people of Florida  have a voice!
