    DC Vote Campaign Headquarters: "Taxation Without Representation" license plates.

    by jennifermueller Updated Jan 20, 2004

    Did you know that until 1970, D.C. residents couldn't even vote for president and vice-president? The U.S. is practically the only nation in the world where the residents of teh capital city are not granted the same voting rights as their fellow citizens.

    DC Vote is an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to securing full voting representation in Congress for the residents of the District of Columbia. They sell gifts and souvineers with their logos and politcal message. They also have an online store.

    What to buy: You have to be a District resident to get "Taxation Without Representation" license plates for your car - but anyone can buy them for bikes, or on t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc.

    Your souvineers could help D.C. residents get the right to vote for representation in Congress and the U.S. Senate and spread the word about the campaign to stop "Taxation Without Representation".

    What to pay: $2-25 from stickers-sweatshirts.
