If You Can Text, You Can Register to Vote

Do you have 60 seconds? What about a cell phone? If so, you’re already halfway to the goal of making your voice count this election season.

If you aren’t registered to vote yet, just send a text or Facebook message to 384-387, and follow the prompts by HelloVote.

Youll be registered to vote in less time than it takes to update your Facebook status.

Care2 members are all smart, caring individuals who want to improve the world. And one of the best ways to impact the world and show your activist stripes is by voting.

We want to make sure Care2 readers in the U.S. are represented in the polls this Nov. 8. Thats why were partnering with HelloVote to make registering to vote quick and easy.

HelloVote is the first-of-its-kind tool that allows users to register through SMS (also known as text messaging). “This election is probably the most-discussed in our lifetime, and HelloVote aims to turn talkers into voters,” says Tiffany Cheng, one of the three co-founders of HelloVote. Cheng’s goal is to bring the registration process directly to the voters, and our goal is to bring HelloVote to you.

About a third of eligible voters in America don’t make it to the polls. A majority of non-voters cite being too busy to vote. Some have registration problems like not knowing where or when to register. But Care2 and HelloVote are here to help solve registration and voting problems right now.

Take the first step to becoming an active voter by texting “hello” to 384-387. Then check back on Care2 for more election coverage.

Theres less than two months to go until voting day, and the race is close. Make sure your voice is heard. Get registered with HelloVote today!
