You are now viewing VOID on its new webserver space all of its own. We have some tweaks to make, but, the bulk of the move is completed and went without a hitch.
We have a local VOID Chapter website in the works as a template which will be completed in coming weeks.
VOID now has its Federal Tax ID no., (AKA Employer ID no. or EIN). IRS has no problem with VOID being tax exempt as a Voter Education and advocacy organization. WE MUST NOT however be involved in promoting or advocating for any particular person or party in an election cycle. That's fine, because that is how we were founded in the first place, non-partisan, all partisan.
With our EIN, I was able to secure, at no cost, a license to use Movable Type software for VOID on this new host space with up to 5 authors and unlimited weblogs under the Non-Profit licensing program. Many thanks to the fine folks at Six Apart, developers of Movable Type software.
I have assembled all the documentation we need to draft our Articles of Incorporation to become a Non-Profit 501(c)3 organization. We will shortly assemble a committee to assist with the initial rough draft. We will be looking for those who have some experience in cash controls or accounting controls design and implementation. Anyone versed in contracts, law, or with experience on a board of directors of a non-profit would also be immensely valuable to us. Please reply if you have any of this experience and would like to participate in drafting our Articles of Incorporation to Email link elsewhere on this page.
Stephanie Crist has been doing a remarkable job of organizing our records and history to date.
David Weller has been regularly sending me internet resources we can tap to raise our visibility. Those which we have not yet followed up on will come into play shortly.
Thanks everyone for your patience, membership dues, and donations, while we get these fundamental organizational issues out of the way. Once done, no later than the end of February, we will be ready to start campaigning for VOID's mission and growth around the country.
And my thanks to all of you have continued to leave VOID's links or logo's on the internet in your surfing or writings. Please, keep up the great work.
Onward toward restoring responsible and accountable democracy in America.
