Calling All Independents and Greens

Do you loathe Rick Santorum? Would you prefer a real progressive Senator like Chuck Pennacchio, but as an Independent or Green you cannot vote for him in the primary election? Well, I have good news for you: you can vote for Chuck in the primary.

It's easy; all that you have to do is temporarily change your affiliation to Democrat by April 17th. Switch party to vote for the one candidate who you actually believe in, and then change back to Independent, Green, etc. after the primary election. Changing affiliation to vote for a progressive candidate should not breach your ethics; indeed, it is the most progressive thing to do (read more here). Which would you prefer: to remain independent and further Bob Casey's chances, or to change your affiliation in name only to give Chuck Pennacchio a fighting chance? I changed my affiliation (from Green) to vote for someone who I believe in, so can you.

All that you need to do is pick up a voter registration form at a post office, or party headquarters. If you don't feel like getting off your ass, then download a form to mail to the PA Department of State. Remember, you need to register by April 17th (this coming Monday).

Thank you for all your blogging about Chuck.

As a reminder (because you probably already know!)our Lancaster for Pennacchio group is holding a rally next Wednesday, April 19, before the debate at F&M College.

We'd like to get as many Chuck supporters as we can; we're hoping a large crowd might get us some much needed media coverage and just may alert some undecided/inattentive voters to the fact that this primary isn't over.

Rally starts at 4:30; debate at 7:00

Please pass this information along to anyone else you think might be interested. Thanks!

I've changed my voter registration from Green to Democrat so I can vote for Pennacchio in the primary election. I hope others have done so as well. Thanks Cajun Jew!!!
