In the midst of election madness we need to stop worrying and start acting. Many of you have been spreading the word with our "I am a Voter for Peace" pledge and with Tuesday around the corner now is the time to bring peace to the polls. Here are some effective and fun ways you can paint the polls pink:

If you haven't pledged to vote for peace yet, do it today (there are prizes!)

Vote early! There are only a few days left but every little bit helps -- visit govote.org to see where you can vote early

Increase the peace vote by calling women around the country and encouraging them to vote. We're partnering with Women's Voices Women's Votes and we will send you a short script and 25 phone numbers to call this weekend! How inspiring is that? Click here and we'll send you what you need to inspire those who need it!

Check out our voter protection tool page for more creative ways YOU can protect this election

When you vote next Tuesday, there are many ways you can carry the message of peace! The lines are sure to be long; here are some things you can do to engage with your neighbors, and turn Election Day into the celebration of Democracy it deserves to be:

  • Bring pink lemonade to make the wait easier
  • Bring crayons, markers, construction paper, coloring books, etc for kids (it's great for kids to see democracy in action!)
  • -Download and bring copies of Greg Palast's Steal Back Your Vote comic book
  • Be sure to take note of or even bring a camera/video camera to document any instances of voter suppression, visit www.866ourvote.org or call the toll-free voter hotline, 1-877-523-2792

Last but not least- sign up to be in action in case of a stolen election. We don't like negative thinking any more than you, but let's be real. We need a plan. For months we've been in conversation with our partners at the No More Stolen Elections coalition and we encourage you to be out in the streets at 5pm, November 5th at your Federal Building -- share this info with friends and neighbors! You can also list your event on our calendar.

November 4th is a day to celebrate! Election Day is our day--it is the day for all of us to stand up and be counted, to make our voices heard.

It is our day to exercise our voice.

Thank you for giving peace a vote and a voice!

Voting for peace every day,
Dana, Deidra, Desiree, Farida, Gael, Gayle, Jean, Jodie, Liz, Lori, Medea, Nancy, and Rae
