Poker Players Alliance Hits Million Mark
By Staff
In America, the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) political advocacy group has passed the magic one million registered members mark and has launched a political action committee (PAC) in the run-up to November’s elections.

The grassroots group stated that it would also be introducing a voter registration programme as part of its If You Play, Have a Say campaign in order to protect the rights of individuals to participate in games of poker.

'Reaching one million members puts the PPA on par with such political powerhouses as the American Association of Retired Persons and the National Association of Realtors and will allow us to advocate even more effectively on behalf of our members,' said Alfonse D’Amato, a former Senator and current Chairman for the PPA.

“With a goal of registering 100,000 poker players as new voters, the If You Play, Have a Say campaign will reach out to PPA members who are not currently registered to vote and raise awareness as to why being active in the political process is important to the future of poker.

“PPA members can go online to to complete a simple online form in order to register to vote in their state.

“In addition to the online voter registration and a direct mail programme, the If You Play, Have a Say campaign will include onsite voter registration drives in key battleground states as well as during the 2008 World Series of Poker beginning May 30.”
