The PreVote 2004 is a dynamic barometer of public sentiment and utilizes the latest internet technologies of social networks, web journals, and ratings to engage communities in the political process.

The PreVote has gained sponsorship with leading companies and aims to reach one million people in the one month leading up to the election. With features on NBC, Yahoo! News, and other national news syndicates, publicity for PreVote 2004 has quickly gained steam.

“We’re using the power of the internet to reinvent politics,” said Solomon Liou, 23, co-founder of The PreVote. “Social networks, web journals, and ratings are three tools that open up elections from one dimensional “yea or nay” systems, to dynamic, expressive exchanges where voters can convey their degree of support and changes in opinion.”

The PreVote helps people encourage their communities of friends to engage in meaningful discussions on the issues that matter to them. The PreVote has teamed up with, an online friend community, to allow prevoters to create their own BuddyTrain page, where they can publish web journals, join discussion groups, and send private messages with their personal community of friends.

“The PreVote is here to get you educated while putting the fun into politics,” said Liou. “It’s fun to see who your friends support, and how their views change going into and coming out of the presidential debates. But ultimately, the goal of the PreVote 2004 is supporting the actual vote on November 2nd and enabling millions of voters to make a conscious and informed decision.”
