Spread the Word

Help spread the word about successes and mobilization of young people during this past cycle.  You can find some talking points at: http://www.yda.org/actions/103/tell-the-youth-vote-story.  Also, as young people we are uniquely positioned to leverage the power of social software to spread our message.  On the morning of election day, YDA started a campaign to encourage using a YDA logo as your profile pic on social networking services: http://www.yda.org/actions/98/replace-your-myspace-and-facebook-pic-with-this-one.  If you haven’t changed your profile pic and/or added YDA as a Friend on MySpace, Facebook, Friendster, or Spaces, now is a great time to do so.
