Would be easier if the vote form would show up on firefox...

> Dear colleagues,
> I've been nominated to TIME's annual list of the world's 100 most influential people. Of course, things being as they are, it's not really me as a person who has been nominated, but the ideals we all share and their continued success.
> There is an online poll, and making the final list would be yet another important feather in the hat for our movement. With PPDE polling at 12% right now (amazing, guys!), we have a really good momentum and I feel it is important to make the most of it.
> So my question is if you would consider broadcasting a message asking all your activists to vote YES (or as it says, "definitely") on TIME's online question whether I should be on the final list. This is a numbers game, and another couple of thousand - preferably tens of thousands - YES votes are needed. The poll closes on Friday.
> If you find it appropriate and useful to get such additional attention to the ideas at this time, please use your party's Twitter accounts, activist reachouts, Facebook pages, pending member mails, and/or what other channels you have with the simple message of telling activists to go to http://tinyurl.com/rickforthe100 and clicking "definitely". It takes less than 5 seconds.
> Also, please don't hack the poll, even though it would be dead easy. :) A manipulated poll would just be too obvious from the results.
> Thanks, and looking forward to meeting you all in Prague! I'll also be at PPDE's GA in Neumünster.
