9. You can make a difference by working for local candidates.
What I've learned from DU actually inspired me to get out there and try to make a difference. I worked for my congressman (NY-20) on his last two campaigns, just showed up at headquarters and asked what I could do. I made GOTV calls, stuffed envelopes and went door-to-door. I honestly do believe that I did persuade folks to vote for him, just by presenting them with the facts. :)

And it can make a difference, since my congressman, in his first election, won by the smallest margin in Congress. (Democratic candidate, red district *sigh*) Meanwhile, DU is an incomparable resource, so there's no reason why you can't do both. We need more informed people out there, so I sure hope that you stick around... :hi:
