It’s hard not to hear all the chatter about today: Election Day 2012. No matter your political affiliation, be sure to cast a vote for the moustache!

Decision 2012: Go With Mo
Great moustaches are an American tradition – from President Teddy Roosevelt to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and even broadcast news legend Walter Cronkite sported a Mo. Today government officials like Roscoe Bartlett, John Hoeven and Henry Waxman grow hefty political Mo’s. David Axelrod’s moustache even has it’s own Twitter account!

In honor of Election Day we are taking a nonpartisan look at all the amazing Mo Bros and Mo Sistas who are representing Movember on The Hill.  The power of the moustache brings together all parties to participate in Movember, from the Parks and Recreation department of the city of Pawnee, Indiana to the mayor of Portland, Oregon, Mr. Sam Adams.

Not afraid of a little competition, Embassy Row is supporting Movember in a big way, with the Embassy network . The Embassy Movember challenge includes representatives from Ecuador, Australia, The UK, Sweden and Niger. It is apropos that the Embassy of the birthplace of Movember, Australia, hosted a kick-off event on Movember 2nd for all the Mo folks participating amongst the embassies.

Over 35 government-employed Mo Bro and Mo Sistas have registered on Movember.com to support the Mo in their legislator’s office.  From the House of Representatives to the Senate and local government, everyone can agree to work together to help change the face of men’s health. By the end of the month the presidential election will be over, but the power of the moustache will be in full force in Washington, D.C. and across this great land.

This Movember – vote for the Mo.

Thanks to our D.C. Mo's for capturing this picture of the Movember election sign in front of the Capitol Building.
