   INFORMATION:  Match.com's Every Single Vote Counts is a voter awareness
                 initiative designed to mobilize the nation's singles.
                 Almost 39 million American singles did not vote in the
                 2000 presidential election.  Very rarely segmented or
                 recognized within the context of political campaigns, it's
                 no wonder that singles have felt disengaged from the
                 process.  Well, no longer.

                 Match.com and Gallup surveyed the attitudes of American
                 singles toward timely political and social issues including

                 marriage, the economy and the war in Iraq.  Match.com,
                 which has more than 12 million socially and potentially
                 politically active members, will use the survey date to
                 generate awareness among singles of the importance of
                 playing a role in the democratic process and to shed some
                 light for the rest of the country on singles' political
