Wait, let me check the calendar again. This really is a mid-term election year, right??
If you’re just as confused as I am, then you are not alone. There seems to be a quiet, but interesting tide turning ahead of November 4th. Texans have seen it first hand through the incredible energy of groups like Battleground Texas, even if the state’s major news outlets are still completely clueless as to what’s going on.
But the massive GOTV efforts extend far beyond the Lone Star State. This election may not have Presidential candidates, but some believe that it could mean more to the future of the country than any so far this century. Congressional gridlock has ground the Federal Government to a halt, and people are starting to notice. Events like the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri have reminded that community just how much their vote really matters, and caused the rest of the nation to take notice as well. The signs are becoming clear… 2014 could be very different from the last mid-term election.
With all of this action, perennial GOTV masters Rock The Vote are once again leading the movement to social consciousness, with some help from Pimp Cup Connoisseur Lil’ John and Girls-tastic Lena Dunham. The video Turn Out For What is pretty funny and sure to be a viral sensation, but hidden in the entertainment is a very real question… what are you turning out for??
Check it out below. You also can tweet with hashtag #TurnOutForWhat on Facebook and Twitter to show what issues you care about most. Everyone has a voice this election year. Let’s hope that more people use it!
