Navigating the Election Day Maze
November 1, 2008

The Nader/Gonzalez Web Team has been hard at work lately.
We’ve been getting the website ready for the final Get-Out-the-Vote effort leading up to Election Day.
And we’ve created a Voter Resource Center
with links to information to help you get out and vote when the big day comes (or before).
You’ll find the Voter Resource Center link in the drop-down menu for the "Action" tab, or by clicking here.
You have questions. We have web links.
Before we lead you through our voter guide, watch this afternoon’s video message from Ralph.
Now:
Are you sure that you’re registered to vote? Find out by checking one of the web-based voter registration tools you can access through our site. And find out what to take to the polls in case you’re asked for proof.
Is it too late for you to register? In some states it is still possible to register and vote on the spot — even at this late date. Go to the Voter Resource Guide to find out if your state is one of them.
Do you need to vote before Election Day? Some states are still open for early or absentee voting — we can lead you to the answer.
Have you moved, or simply forgotten where you need to go to cast your ballot? Click here and try out a Google Gadget that may be able to map your polling place, or use the link to get contact information for your local election authority.
Are you curious about what sort of ballot you’ll be faced with at the polls? We have downloadable sample ballots for representative counties in most of the states (which will show your choices for the presidential election) and a terrific link to information about types of voting equipment used in jurisdictions all across the country.
Are you wondering what ballot initiatives, referenda or proposed constitutional amendments you’ll be asked to weigh in on? We are linked to ballotpedia in the Voter Resource Center.
 Finally, we have information on how to contact the Nader/Gonzalez Headquarters in Washington, DC if you should experience any attempts to obstruct your right to vote or witness fraud at the polls.
We’ve all heard the news reports and read the histories of elections in 21st-century America. We can only hope that this election proves to be truly free and fair.
The members of the Web Team hope that you find the Voter Resource Center a useful tool.
And that you’ll consider a contribution to help us get it done — in cyberspace — over these last crucial days.
Onward to Tuesday!
The Web Team
PS: The fundraising folks asked us to remind you that if you donate $100 or more, we will ship to you the hard cover 40th Anniversary edition of Unsafe at Any Speed — Ralph’s historic expose of the American automobile industry — autographed by the man himself. It was the book that launched the American consumer movement and saved hundreds of thousands of lives. This autographed edition is bound to become a rare collector’s item after the election. So, get it now. Only a limited number left. (This book offer ends November 4, 2008 at 11:59 p.m.)

Happy Halloween.
Today, you can help us Freak Out the Corporate State.
How?
Donate $4 to Nader/Gonzalez now.
Why?
Ralph Nader is pulling four percent among registered voters in the latest CNN poll in battleground states.
Four percent in Arizona.
Four percent in Nevada.
Four percent in Ohio.
Four percent in Pennsylvania.
Let’s say the predictions are right and 130 million Americans vote.
And let’s say the four percent holds up.
That’s 5 million voters for the Nader/Gonzalez shift the power agenda.
From the corporations back into the hands of the people.
That’s enough to freak out the corporate state.
Even the thought of that this Halloween is enough to freak them out.
But to get there, we need to hit our last fundraising goal of $4 million by election day.
 And we’re $170,000 away.
So, today, Halloween, 2008, let’s freak out the corporate state.
We need 4,000 of you — our loyal supporters — to hit that there donation button.
And donate $4 now.
We’re driving toward a winning election day.
When we send a strong message.
We’re here.
We’re near.
We’re not going anywhere.
Get used to it.
Onward to November and beyond.

The Final 100 Hours: Get Out the Vote 
October 30, 2008

www.officialnaderstore.com
In the final 100 hours before the election, we need your help to implement our get out the vote (GOTV) plan.
To make tens of thousands of phone calls, knock on doors in hundreds of communities, and pass out thousands of flyers and leaflets.
To remind voters that Nader/Gonzalez is the independent choice on November 4th.
It’s a simple five step process.
Here’s what you need to do:
Step One: Vote for Nader/Gonzalez. Get your friends and family to vote for Nader/Gonzalez. Vote early. Vote on election day. But vote independent. Vote Nader/Gonzalez.
Step Two: Connect with Nader Supporters in Your State. Go to our state-by-state map.
Connect with your state, regional, community, and campus coordinators to find out how you can help.
Step Three: Spread the Word. Great Nader/Gonzalez literature is available in every state. Click here
to see the location of the campaign literature nearest you. You can download GOTV flyers to help pass out in your local community. You can knock on your neighbors’ doors. Canvass door to door, telling your neighbors why you’re voting for Nader/Gonzalez. Urge them to do the same.
Step Four: Create Visibility. Help us distribute Nader/Gonzalez buttons, window signs and more. We’ve unloaded all of our materials to our coordinators around the country. Click here for people with campaign materials in your state. To find a state or local coordinator with bumperstickers and other Nader/Gonzalez merchandise, click here.
Step Five: Join our Nationwide Phone Bank. Are you willing to help phone bank supporters and independents across the country? If yes, please contact liz@votenader.org to sign up for our national GOTV phone bank effort. Over the next 24 hours we’ll be sending them information on how to vote for Nader/Gonzalez in your state and sharing with them a GOTV video from Ralph that he shot last night on why they should join the GOTV effort.
That’s five simple steps.
History will look back on this effort as the end of the two party domination in this country and the beginning of a new era of citizen politics.
We can’t make that happen unless you help us get millions of votes for Nader/Gonzalez on November 4th.
Onward to November.

Nader & Gonzalez in Debates in Battleground States
October 29, 2008

It’s debate week!
Ralph Nader will appear tomorrow (Thursday October 30, 2008, 4:30 to 5:30 EST) in a Third Party debate at the City Club of Cleveland. Libertarian candidate Bob Barr and Constitution Party candidate Chuck Baldwin will participate in the debate. The three other electorally viable Presidential candidates have been invited.
Then on Sunday November 2, 2008, Matt Gonzalez will appear in three-way a vice-presidential debate in Las Vegas with the Constitution and Libertarian VP candidates.That debate is being sponsored by Free & Equal.
(By the way, in case you haven’t seen it yet, check out Matt’s most recent expose of the Obama-led corporate and militarist Democrats. We predict Obama will not address any of these issues head on tonight in his 30 minute, five network infomercial.)
C-Span will tape the City Club of Cleveland debate and show it sometime this weekend.
And the City Club will live stream the event on their website.
So, tell your friends and family to watch tomorrow afternoon.
Onward to November.

Howard Zinn Voting for Nader
October 29, 2008
www.votenader.org
www.officialnaderstore.com
Howard Zinn now says he’s voting for Nader.
The famous historian lives in Massachusetts, where Obama is ahead by 20 points.
Zinn created a stir earlier when he said he was voting for Obama.
He legitimately took some heat for supporting the corporate Obama.
But late last night, Zinn admitted in an e-mail to our campaign that he made a mistake and now says he will vote for Nader.
And Zinn urges all people of conscience to vote for the true progressive in slam dunk states.
Of which there are now many.
(Zinn says that in non slam dunk states, he urges people to vote for Obama. We obviously disagree with that bit of advice.)
Or as Ralph Nader put it today:
"A vote for Nader/Gonzalez on November, rather than being wasted by piling onto an Obama landslide or McCain implosion, will produce a stronger hammer and watchdog for what millions of Americans want — including public Medicare for all with private delivery and a living wage for the one in three workers who don’t make one."
 "Unless millions of voters of conscience choose the progressive hammer and watchdog of Nader/Gonzalez, millions of votes will be tactically wasted and serve only to increase the mandateless landslide of Barack Obama."
So, if you are ambivalent about this election, fear not.
If you live in a slam dunk state, follow the advice of Howard Zinn.
Vote Independent.
Vote Nader for President.
Onward to November
The Nader Team
PS: A lot of our supporters heard that Zinn said he was voting for Obama. Now that he has set the record straight, it’s important that we pass along the word. So, forward this e-mail to your friends and family.
PS: Remember, if you donate $100 or more, we will ship to you the hard cover 40th Anniversary edition of Unsafe at Any Speed — Ralph’s historic expose of the American automobile industry — autographed by the man himself.
