Aliens Vote is a new organization website that wants to know who our nation's 29.1 million home-owning, tax-paying aliens want to vote for in the coming presidential election. (Those people, of course, can't vote.) The site offers aliens a chance to cast an imaginary ballot for either McCain or Obama (or neither), and will release the results after the election. We're not entirely certain how it can verify that participants are in fact aliens (something involving cell phones), but we love the idea of hearing what the nation's disenfranchised immigrants have to say.UPDATE: We got a message from someone at the site who explained that they essentially use the honor system (so it's not totally verifiable), but that real phone carriers (as opposed to calling cards) are required.Thanks, Folkert.
