Turnout and Turn On!

A new voter registration group promises to leave young voters satisfied on election night - regardless of the outcome of the presidential race., a non-profit, non-partisan organization, is taking a "different kind of get-out-the-vote approach," said Michelle Collins, co-founder of Her organization encourages voters to sign a pledge to have sex on election night with another voter. "When we look at the statistics there is a distinct trend that fewer young people voted in the last election, and even fewer people had sex that night," she said.

Operating out of Brooklyn, N.Y., since Sept. 4, the Web campaign is an attempt to send 100,000 first-time youth voters to the polls for the November election and "catalyze" 250,000 orgasms.

Sounds like a pretty optimistic goal, the latter, that is. Perhaps the NES should include a question to see how they did.
