There are hundreds, perhaps thousands of ways to help promote the regultation & legalization of online poker. Below are just some ways that you can help. You can find more ways to help in the forums section entitled Promoting Online Poker.

Registering To Vote
You must be at least the age of 18 to vote. In the United States nineteen states permit 17-year-olds to vote in primary elections and caucuses if they will be 18 years of age, by Election Day. If you are a convicted felon, you can not vote and therefore, can not register to vote. If (or) when the time comes that a vote is to take place regarding the legalization and regulation of online poker, you need to be registered to vote. It's easy and simple. It's also important that you are registered to vote anyways. Choosing the candidates that are running in your town, city, county, state etc... is very important. You will see below & throughout MakePokerLegal.com, a button linking you to register to vote. You can click any of those links or you can click here to register to vote.

Sign the Poker Petition
There are tens of thousands of poker players, id not millions. Later this year, the Poker Players Alliance (PPA) will present the Poker Petition to President Barack Obama that has been on going for over several weeks. The Poker Petition is asking for President Obama's support to exempt poker from the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA), and for the legalization and regulation of online poker. Here is an excerpt from the Poker Petition website that is listed below:

"President Obama – Poker is Not a Crime
I am a voter and a fellow poker player asking for your support of
my right to play games of skill like poker on the Internet.

This issue is not lost on the American public. We recently made
our desire for this liberty known through your Citizen's Briefing
Book website. Of the thousands of proposals submitted, a
proposal supporting Internet poker rights was the number one
issue on technology policy.

What's most important to me is your support for my rights.
Please: 1) exempt poker from the Unlawful Internet Gambling
Enforcement Act (UIGEA) and 2) license and regulate internet
poker in the US. 3) Respect the rights of law-abiding Americans
who love to play this great game of skill.
"
