[CLW] Our 2008 Elections Contest is Now Open!

[CLW] Our 2008 Elections Contest is Now Open!

October 16, 2008


Polls today show Barack Obama leading John McCain in the presidential election, but will that lead remain? Will the Democrats have the sweep in the Senate and House of Representatives predicted by some political pundits? Will public disenchantment with incumbents in general instead cause upsets for both parties?

Here’s your chance to make your best guess – and win some money and notoriety while you do it.

Click here to enter our 2008 election contest!


This year, we want you to predict who will win the presidential election nationwide, and in five battleground states. We also chose several of the hottest, most-contested, most-watched congressional races across the country.

So, here’s your chance to cast your best guess as to what will happen on Nov. 4 (and, win $100). Enter now!

Rules are below:

2 winners — 1st place wins $100, 2nd place wins $50, and both receive glorification on the Council for a Livable World website

Five points for guessing who wins the presidential election

Two points for each correct pick for which presidential candidate wins in 5 battleground states

One point for every correct answer in the Senate and House races

Two tie-breakers

One entry per person

Races not decided by November 18 will be discarded from consideration of the contest, including races that affect the tie-breaker questions

You must be a United States citizen to enter (say our lawyers)

Staff of Council for a Livable World and its associated organizations may enter but are not eligible to win a prize

Deadline for entering the contest: Monday, November 3, midnight EST

Send this contest to your friends, colleagues and fellow political pundits (even though we know you probably don’t want the added competition). This year’s races are too interesting and too contested to sit on the sidelines.

Cast your votes now!


John Isaacs and Guy Stevens

P.S. With your help, we’ve raised nearly $1 million to help our endorsed House and Senate candidates boot Bush’s allies out of Washington. Click here to make a contribution!

Also, thanx for signing my petitions, et al, please consider sharing them. Also, since Admin. of change.org aren't allowing me to invite people to do my actions lately and are switching my urls for my petitions so when I invite people off their site they can't get to the petition either (ergo 3 possible urls for each petition), here's a few of my latest actions; do as few or as many as you'd like (there are 3 linx for each petition because admin. switches between the 3 of them so people trying to sign the petition can‘t get to it): This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Haiti disaster anniversary, please, do what you can: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9033 This petition on change.org: Haiti disaster anniversary: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2?share_id=yIpWHEHxri&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2 http://www.change.org/petitions/view/haiti_disaster_anniversary_2   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Green, Indigenous, Native American, etc., actions: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9026 This petition on change.org: Green, Indigenous, Native American, acts: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous_native_american_acts?share_id=NHvTtQadfP&pe=pce http://uspoverty.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts http://www.change.org/petitions/view/green_indigenous,_native_american_acts   This post on Disabled Greens News and discussion: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, holiday: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/DisabledGreensNews/message/9024 This petition on change.org: Art/Act: celebrate Dr. M.L.
