It looks like GM, in all its infinite wisdom, has taken the VOLT Vote down. They did so just as the vote was fast approaching the half million mark. On April 7 I took snap shot of the survey and it stood at just under 450,000 votes tallied of which 446,118 said that GM should build the VOLT and another 445,187 voters said to GM that they would buy the vehicle if it were made. Big, big numbers to say the least, however, I was hoping that the vote would reach the psychological milestone of 500,000. There is just no denying a number like half a million votes. If GM ever says there isn't enough demand for alternative fuel vehicles remind them that they can use their fingers and their toes to count. Read on for action.

In the last few days on the Vote for the Volt site the number of people voting negatively against the Volt has jumped. The Chevy Volt is an automobile that runs mainly off of electricity. It is one really great way to get off of foreign oil that funds terrorism. I want everyone who reads to go to the Chevy site and vote for the Volt.
Click here to go to the Chevy Volt website
When at the site go to the lower part of the page and to the left. Click on Vote for Volt Survey. Vote yes on both questions.
