Here's an e-mail we just got from the Working Families Party. They want Obama supporters to vote on the WFP line. (Getting any interesting local election mail/e-mail? Send it our way.)
Good candidates are important, and we have one in Barack Obama.
We hope you're not just voting for him, but doing so enthusiastically on the Working Families ballot line ("Row E").
At least as important as the candidate is the party. Parties allow people to support a set of values, not just a candidate. Voting on the Working Families line on Tuesday counts the same, but it also says "Yes!" to the Working Families view of the world.
You're saying: we can do better than this. We can create a country in which all people have a decent shot at a meaningful, secure life.
It's not pie-in-the-sky. We know how to do it.
Health care for everyone. A decent job with decent wages. A house or an apartment you can afford. A good school with a good teacher. An end to stupid foreign policy adventures. An end to Wall Street rip-off artists.
That's the Working Families Party. We stand with you 365 days a year. Please stand with us tomorrow by voting for the entire Working Families Party ticket.

Why is voting Working Families so critical?
Even if Obama and the Democrats sweep into power, our work for a better world only gets more important.
In Washington - and Albany - Democrats will be under extraordinary pressure to play it safe.
America is facing big problems. And with them come big opportunities to create a fairer society. The health care crisis, the mortgage crisis, the crisis on Wall Street, the need for a Green economy - all of these cry out for bold solutions.
If politics teaches us anything, it's the need to keep the pressure on. And votes on the Working Families Party line are a way of doing precisely that. It's a message to the politicians: be bold!
If you haven't already, take a moment to share this message with 5 friends or family who'll be voting for Obama in New York tomorrow.
The more votes cast on the Working Families line, the greater our strength for the fights ahead.
