Maurice Berger, Political Director, PollTrack,
PollTrack has just come off a very successful campaign season, tracking the most
exciting presidential election in a generation (along with more than 20 US
Senate races). With more than 220,000 visitors in the first two-and-half months
of our launch we had visitors from every state in the union and 108 nations. One
feature of the site, VOICES ON THE GROUND, invited contributions from
artists, writers, observers, scholars, students, and others who helped us track
the election from the perspective of where it mattered the most: with voters on
As we approach the inauguration of President-Elect Obama, VOICES launches The Obama Project--an online forum for
commentary, analysis, poetry, photographs, and YouTube content that
explores the following questions: What Does The Election of Barack Obama
Mean To You? And What Does it Mean for The Nation?
We ask you to submit texts (from a single line to 2,000 words),
photographs, or content you've posted on YouTube. We will be uploading
content on an ongoing basis through the inauguration and beyond. You are
also welcome to submit materials that relate to Election 2008 but do not fall
within the purview of The Obama Project.
To submit texts or images, go to the "Participate" tab on the yellow tool bar in the lower right of the VOICES page.
You may also send texts (and photo attachments) directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. However you submit materials, PLEASE: include your full
name and your city and state or location (if outside the US)
We very much look forward to hearing your voices on PollTrack.
