Anyone can rant against the current state of American democracy. Anyone can talk trash about politicians, or bemoan the apathy of the electorate. How to Get Stupid White Men Out of Office is a guide to getting off one's cynical duff and actually effecting positive change through the electoral process. Editor William Upski Wimsatt created the League of Youth Voters, a political action committee designed to raise awareness amongst younger demographics and support candidates on a country-, state-, and city-wide basis. This book tells the stories of how of these marginalized voters - such as gays, punks, blacks, and Latinos - organized to make the winning difference in contested legislative and electoral races across the country. To prepare readers for the 2004 elections, this book lists potentially close races, provides maps of key swing states and districts, lists 800 people under 35 in office, and examines youth voter turnout and impact.
