“Declare Yourself,” says social network portal MySpace in a new campaign urging its users to get out there and vote. Declare Yourself is a nonpartisan non-profit dedicated to encouraging Americans between the ages of 18 and 29. Declare’s and MySpace are offering MySpace users tools like the “I Registered to Vote on MySpace” badge that they can proudly display on their profiles and the branded Declare Yourself profile, which offers voter registration instructions in both English and Spanish.

“Declare Yourself’s research shows that young Americans are hungering to participate more in our democratic process, and the Internet empowers them to do that in a meaningful way through information, connectivity and the tools to become more active citizens,” said Declare Yourself founder Norman Lear in a statement. “We are thrilled to be working closely with MySpace to help energize its users and give them a voice in the November election and beyond.”

MySpace is also running “Register to Vote” banners that link to the Declare Yourself profile and Declare Yourself video PSA’s directed by David LaChapelle. It’s also encouraging users to send the Declare Yourself link to their friends and running election-related news. The “Declare Yourself” promotional campaign will run on MySpace through October.
