Second Life, the virtual home to over one million residents worldwide, will host an major music festival in support of Senator Barack Obama’s historic run for the Presidency. Obama for President, Second Life’s largest pro-Obama group, is inviting Obama/Biden supporters from across the country for an afternoon and music, fun and activism.

Obama Fest is a drive to register some of the more than 50 million Americans who failed to register in 2004. Obama for President will set up virtual registration computers, with links to online voter registration sites. Experienced group members will also be available to answer questions on registration procedures and deadlines, as well as specific Obama policy questions. Obama for President founder Keith Mandell (Second Life Name Cubsfan Pugilist) says Obama Fest ’08 hopes to go beyond inspiring Obama activity in Second Life: “The goal of Second Life events is to reach people who might otherwise be unreachable, and encourage them to become involved in Senator Obama’s real-life campaign, at a time when such involvement is essential for victory.” According to organizer Sienna Harris, another goal for Obama Fest ’08 is encouraging Second Life residents to give generously to Senator Obama’s campaign: “we want to make sure he has the funding needed to get his message out.”
