Vote By Pal is a tool that connects Americans who can vote but aren't interested with Americans who wish they could vote, but can't.
It's an experiment in power sharing, accountability, flexibility and combating the effects (both political and personal) of disenfranchisement. It's not about "maximizing turnout" or getting any one person or party into office.
It's very simple and not high tech at all.
You can even read an op-ed I wrote about the project in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Here's how it works:
Fill out the simple form, specifying whether you're a registered voter or are unable to vote.
You'll then be connected with a voting "pal." If you're registered to vote, you'll be connected to someone who can't vote. If you can't vote, you'll be connected with someone who can.
Once you've been connected with your voting pal, the person who can't vote can tell the person who can vote who they would vote for if they could.
The person who otherwise wouldn't vote can then choose to vote the suggestions of their pal. They are of course under no obligation to do so. That would be illegal.
