The site will be for people to pledge to vote for ron paul in your state caucus/primary. My goal is to have it sign-up ready within the next 24 hours. After that I'm going to:

-build self updating graphs tracking sign ups over time for each state
-figure out some way to set a sign-up goal for every state (suggestions for how to do this are welcome... do all states publish previous caucus turn out stats?)
-Set up a wiki page for each state with instructions on how to register and vote.

Any other ideas are welcome. The link will be coming as soon as it is ready for signups. In the mean time any brainstorming is appreciated!

Graphic design is put together, need help with content. Any suggestions on this?

By connecting on the Internet to mobilize voters who wouldn't otherwise attend their caucus, we can make a difference.

Caucuses are attended by an average of 0.6% of the voting population. A grassroots movement can make a serious impact in this stage of the Presidential race. This website is devoted to educating and motivating those who are not familiar with the caucus process, and to the supporters of Ron Paul who are making history through the power of social networking on the Internet.

Sounds great. I'll bet you'll get a lot of input in here iof you bump it tommorow when everyone is looking for news about the USA Today ad. :-)

is there a good list of all the sites I should link to somewhere? I have some but if anyone knows where there is a page that has a fuller set (I assume there are over a dozen good Ron Paul sites) I'd like to link to all of them. ETA until the basic version is ready for registrations: 2 hours. Then work 8-5, oof.

53 pledges so far with New York in the lead at 17 pledges. I'm still working on some extra goodies (graphs & charts) then am going to start emailing webmasters asking for links. I still need to set a user goal. Does 500,000 sound reasonable?
