Youth for Obama Voter Awareness and Action

Make your first vote and your future votes count! Meet up with other young voters at Galaxy Cinema in Cary to learn about the Obama campaign and give your ideas on how first-time voters can forge real change in this election.

Learn how to register voters. Make connections with Obama campaign staff. Talk about the issues. Network with others who want to get involved. Find out what you can do to make North Carolina's May 6 primaries a historic turning point for our nation.

After the discussion, we'll meet in the Galaxy Cinema parking lot to team up and head out to register voters in the surrounding community and shopping areas.

This past weekend, Obama volunteers were on hand at the Triangle Jewish Film Festival to register voters and help them with questions about polling places and change-of-address issues. Last week, Galaxy hosted a lunch discussion about Obama campaign needs and, later in the week, a postfilm discussion about the film "Taxi to the Dark Side."

Because the Triangle is growing by leaps and bounds, it's a prime area to raise awareness among not only experienced voters but also first-time voters (many of whom are college/university students or new U.S. citizens). It's a wonderful area to help people learn about voting in the North Carolina primaries and to aid them in registering and updating their address for the voter registration rolls.

Check with your local indie cinema to see about sponsoring Obama events. They can make excellent staging areas for voter registration drives, and most are happy to host postfilm discussion opportunies.

We can make a difference in North Carolina. Yes, we can!!
