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.
So here is what we are going to do. What we are going to do is to talk directly to GM through their Chevrolet Contact Us page. We are going to ask GM to put the Volt vote site back up, of course maintaining the votes already cast. To do this click on the Chevy Volt link below and put something like this in the message:
"I want buy a vehicle like the Volt that uses clean electricity most of the time, but has the ability to operate continuously through the use of a generator allowing me to go long distances. Please put the Volt Vote site back up so that I can register my vote."
PS. If any of you were able to capture a screen shot of the Volt Vote after the 7th and before they took it off the website please show us what the final numbers were. Thank you. JL
