The website is tied in to an advertising campaign which started running in South Dakota at the beginning of August. The campaign highlights the role of ethanol in increased energy security, economic development and decreased gas prices.
The goal for the group is to get at least 4,000 state residents to register their support at the web site signupforethanol.com. However, the website is attracting ethanol supporters nationwide, not just South Dakota. Names of people from at least 25 other states are listed on the website ethanol supporter scroll. States from coast to coast are represented – including California, New York, Florida, New Hampshire, Washington, Arizona and more.
The site also offers links to information about ethanol and ideas for how supporters can take action.
