run-to-vote.jpgRun to Vote combines the sport of track and field with your pledge to vote in 2008. A nonpartisan voting drive led by students and teachers from Granville Central High School in Stem, North Carolina, the Run to Vote team is traveling through 48 states to register people to vote, and collecting pledges to participate in the election this November. For every person that registers to vote or pledges to vote, one of the teachers, or volunteers from the team, will run the equivalent lap on a quarter mile track.

Through July 5, the team has run 814 laps, registered 153 people in 18 states and collected more than a thousand citizen pledges to vote. (More info on their website, Run To Vote)
