The folks at ActBlue, who did such a stellar job of streamlining the process of making online contributions to Congressional and Senatorial candidates last year, are looking to expand to all 50 states for state races. We made heavy use of their capabilities for federal races as part of Texas Tuesdays last year; having this at the state level as well would be a huge boon for us.
Obviously, you can't do all 50 at once, so they're looking for input on how to prioritize. There's a poll you can take to give them some guidance - the top four states in this instant-runoff ballot will go first. Right now, Texas makes the cut, but casting a vote for the Lone Star State would help ensure that it stays there. If I understand the mechanism, ranking Texas first and leaving the others blank would have the greatest effect, but as long as you have it in there it'll do.Posted by Charles Kuffner on October 16, 2005 to Show Business for Ugly People | TrackBack
