To kick off National Voter Registration Day earlier this week, veteran empowerment campaign and Veterans Call partner Got Your 6 launched a voter registration portal to challenge all Americans to participate in the U.S. democratic process. The site, gotyour6.org/vote, allows users to receive election reminders, get registered to vote, and apply for absentee ballots.
“From the forests of Western Europe to the mountains of Afghanistan and the deserts of Iraq, over the decades U.S. service members have fought to liberate and bring democracy to hundreds of millions of people across the world. This Election Day, thank a veteran by actively participating in our democratic process,” said Iraq War veteran and Got Your 6 Executive Director Bill Rausch.
Got Your 6 is committed to uniting veterans, the military community, and the American public as the nation elects a new Commander in Chief. As a nonpartisan organization created to inspire veterans to lead a resurgence of community across the country, Got Your 6 has issued challenges to all Americans this election cycle.

Got Your 6’s Challenge To The American Public

- Encourage public dialogue.
- Engage family, friends, and neighbors in the electoral process.
I deployed to Baghdad, Iraq in May of 2006 on the heels of the December 2005 Iraqi election. I met with so many Iraqis who proudly showed me photos of themselves and their families holding up their purple fingers on Election Day. These men and women faced down roadside bombs, suicide bombers, and snipers to participate in their democracy with 80 percent turnout. Over the past 100 years, Americans have not even come close to that level of turnout. We can do better. We should do better. We will do better!”.
