On August 4, the day the tour was announced, MoveOn PAC added approximately 50,000 members to its ranks. "To date, over 120,000 folks have joined MoveOn as a direct result of the tour. That's a five per cent increase in our membership in just 10 days – really significant," said MoveOn President Eli Pariser, "It puts us in a great position to work on the issues this tour is about on November 3rd."
"The excitement about this tour is fantastic," adds Ellen Malcom of ACT, which serves at the Vote for Change tour beneficiary. "This is really going to help give us the resources to talk to millions of voters. The artists have an ability to talk about the issues with groups of voters who don't often listen to politicians. I think many swing voters are going to start paying attention in a different way because artists are speaking out." –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
