"Earth Vote" is a fictional story about everyone in the world getting a chance to vote for peace. People with supernatural powers from another planet, the Lumans, telepathically address all people on Earth at once. Accompanying the message is a bright comforting light. The Lumans say there will be a yes or no vote in one week and that a 2/3 super-majority is necessary to implement their plan. Everyone in the world, including children, can vote yes or no telepathically and no one can interfere with anyone else's vote. The Lumans stipulate that voting yes means all guns and bombs will be banned worldwide - and they have the powers to detect and disarm anyone attempting to defy the ban.
Also arriving are evil aliens called Ranks, who smell bad and want to colonize the Earth for its perfume production. The Ranks become allies with Earth's tyrants in an effort to defeat the Lumans' vote.
The Lumans and Ranks fan out to campaign for and against the vote with political and spiritual leaders, the media and regular folks around the world.
Before all this happens, we meet three American window washers amid the turmoil of their everyday lives. Fairly is a white divorced recovering alcoholic who is trying to re-unite his family. Fred is a black ex-basketball star whose girlfriend's daughter witnesses a murder. And Camilla is a young Latina whose kid brother gets in trouble with a gang. We follow how these people and their families respond to the Lumans' offer to make world peace.
The story shifts among the window washers, the Lumans and the Ranks until the week ends with the climactic vote.
