NY Flavor In ‘WE Vote’ Campaign

Written by John DeSio on . Posted in Politics, Posts.

The WE television network has launched a new campaign designed to get one million new women registered to vote in time for the presidential elections.

The campaign, called "WE Vote 08," features quite a bit of New York flair. It’s co-chairs are two former New York Congresswomen, Geraldine Ferraro (who also was the Democratic vice presidential nominee in 1984) and Susan Molinari. Though they represent different parties, both are happy to push this non-partisan effort to raise electoral awareness among females.

"The path to equality
begins with an active and informed base and WE tv is providing a valuable
catalyst that will activate and inform millions of women across the country,”
said Ferraro. “This non-partisan effort supports no other cause other
than the opportunity to get involved. I am proud to lead WE Vote ’08, to work
with the various groups who are supporting the initiative and to help
dramatically increase the participation of women in the political process."

Several celebrities, such as Kelly Ripa, have also signed on to aid the campaign. More here.
