Unmarried Americans: are you voting

As some of you know, I’m on the board of the Alternatives to Marriage Project. We know that a significant number of Americans of voting age are unmarried at any given time. But how involved are they in the political process? If you are unmarried, American, and of voting age, please take a couple of seconds to respond to AtMP’s poll about voting behaviour. One question:

We know that barely half of unmarried people voted for president in 2004. And we know that lots more people are turning out to vote in 2008. But we haven’t seen any reports about changes in unmarried voter turnout – so we need to write the report ourselves! Politicians won’t respect us and our lives unless they know that we vote. Help us tell the real story about how much unmarried people care and vote. Did you vote (or caucus) in this year’s presidential primary?

Thanks.
