Last day to register- would this convince you?

Since today is the last day to register to vote in many states (mine included), I thought I’d highlight some communication campaigns that have tried to encourage people to register.

The overwhelming majority of these campaigns are aimed at young people. Here are a few that I found interesting – do any of these make the case? Would they compel you to register?

This music video from Rock the Vote obviously leans left, so it may alienate would be registrants who don’t agree on certain social issues. But it is a catchy tune….

Any register to vote PSAs that you thought were interesting? effective?

(By the way, if you haven’t already, please REGISTER & VOTE!!!)
