HEADLINE: Poker Players Alliance, Now One Million Plus, Launches Voter Registration and PokerPAC

Poker grassroots advocacy group Poker Players Alliance (PPA) in a press release today announced they passed the magic million member mark, and in preparation for this November's US elections they also announced the launch this week of a voter registration program and its political action committee (PAC) as part of their "If You Play, Have a Say" campaign.

"Reaching one million members puts the PPA on par with such political powerhouses as AARP and the National Association of Realtors, and will allow us to advocate even more effectively on behalf of our members," said PPA Chairman Former Senator Alfonse D'Amato.


To fully leverage its growing membership, the organization launched a comprehensive voter registration campaign this week to underscore the growing political activism among the poker community. With a goal of registering 100,000 poker players as new voters, the "If You Play, Have a Say" campaign will reach out to PPA members who are not currently registered to vote and raise awareness as to why being active in the political process is important to the future of poker.

To make it easy for poker players to register to enable them to vote, PPA has set up a website at


Additionally, PPA launched PokerPAC, its political action committee, this week. PokerPAC, which is open to dues paying members of PPA as well as PPA Board Members and employees, will further strengthen the group's efforts on Capitol Hill.

PPA Chairman D'Amato will serve as the PAC chairman, with former Congressman Toby Moffett as vice chairman and poker pro Annie Duke as an honorary PokerPAC board member.

"The formation of PokerPAC and the 'If You Play, Have a Say' campaign sends a clear message to elected officials in Congress and the state capitals that poker players are paying attention to the laws they enact that impact an individual's right to play poker. Our one million members' voices will be heard," said D'Amato.
