As we head toward the 2008 Presidential Election, there are a lot of issues that will be important to voters. An issue that will be important to you is a candidate's position on videogames.
That's why the Entertainment Software Association has launched the Video Game Voters Network (VGVN), a website dedicated to making it easy for game-playing voters to contact the candidates about games. The site offers news about games and how they relate to politics as well as opportunities to take action.
By signing up and entering your information, the VGVN will send a form letter to the Presidential candidates that stresses education about videogames instead of legislation.
Here is an excerpt from that letter:
"I am writing to make you aware of an issue that is quite important to me and millions of Americans - the right to free speech. In recent years, we have seen representatives at all levels of government attempt to restrict this right by passing laws that regulate the sale and rental of video games. As an American, a voter, and an avid video game player, I want to ensure my rights are protected."
