I should let these guys speak for themselves, looks really good:

Unmarried women could decide this election and their concerns dramatically change America's course if they register and vote in higher numbers, according to groundbreaking research that includes a first-of-its-kind national survey and a comprehensive analysis of recent public data, including the Census. Unmarried women have been ignored as voters and they've been on the sidelines of our democracy, but they represent a powerful force for dramatic change.

If unmarried women voted at the same rate as married women, they would have a decisive impact on this election and could be the most important progressive agents of change in modern politics. They represent millions more voters with very clear concerns about the economy, health care, and education. They want big changes and a more progressive agenda that addresses their economic worries most of all.

According to the U.S. Census, unmarried women are 46 percent of all voting-age women and 56 percent of all unregistered women. As of 2000, there were 16 million unmarried, unregistered women and 22 million unmarried women who did not vote. If unmarried women voted at the same rate as married women, there would have been more than six million more voters in the electorate.
