Author Stephen Elliott has started Operation Ohio to encourage college students in several states to register to vote by signing up to have a well-known author call to remind them. This is a good idea. I would like to get a phone call from a well-known writer type, but sadly, am not eligible.

WRITERS PARTICIPATING IN OPERATION OHIO INCLUDE: Tobias Wolff, Michael Chabon, ZZ Packer, Dave Eggers, Ann Cummins, Glen David Gold, Gabe Hudson, Aimee Bender, Julie Orringer, Vendela Vida, Jim Shepard, Stephen Elliott, Andrew Sean Greer, Anthony Swofford, Ryan Harty, Peter Orner, Tom Barbash, Michelle Marcom, Michelle Redmond, Chris Abani, Michelle Tea, Laurenn McCubbin, Ayelet Waldman, Victor LaVal, Jonathan Ames, Dan Chaon, Robert Olmstead, Rick Moody, Ann Packer, Michael Cunningham, Daniel Handler, Nick Flynn, Jonathan Lethem, and many more.

Students who attend college in Ohio, Iowa, Wisconsin, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Pennsylvania, or Florida are eligible, so if that includes you or someone you know, sign up!
