The Poker Players Alliance (PPA) recently announced that it hit the one-million-member mark. Truthfully, membership currently stands at 1,000,450. That, in itself, is amazing, considering it is difficult to get more than five poker players to agree on a restaurant for dinner and commit to it, much less take the time to become a member of a political organization.
In its effort to up the ante, the PPA has also launched a voter registration drive, making it easy to register to vote in your home state. The campaign is called, “If You Play, Have a Say.”
And the PPA has launched a political action committee called PokerPAC, and members are encouraged to get involved. With the upcoming November 2008 elections, the PPA seems to have stepped up its game and is ready to play with the big boys.
It’s time to get involved, people! Sit out of that online game for a few minutes and pull up the PPA websites. Register to vote, send messages to your members of Congress, and stand up for your game!
