Want to help the Dems win on election day?

29 Oct

No pitch for money here, just a little bit of your time.

Having worked on a few election campaigns, one thing I’ve learned is that getting people to actually go out and vote is very important. While you or I might be itching for election day to get here, many people do not take voting very seriously. They’ll vote if they can, but they don’t make it a priority.

MoveOn.org is coordinating a huge get out the vote (GOTV) project, asking volunteers to make a few calls to likely Democratic voters between now and election day. I’ve volunteered, and while I thought the idea of calling up strangers to ask them to vote is invasive, kind of rude, and the last thing I’d want to be doing, it’s actually not too bad. Most of the people seem to appreciate the reminder to go out and vote on election day.

Please join in this effort. The Republicans are making a huge push to turn out their base of voters, and we can’t assume that many of their supporters are going to stay home. The Republican base may be unhappy with their office holders, but they know they need to keep the Democrats from winning. So they’re working hard, and the GOP chairman seems to be very pleased with how that effort is going. We need to outwork the Republicans, and every little bit helps.

So, even if you can make only a couple of calls, it takes just a little time and you can make a big difference. Click on this picture here to sign up and get started. We can’t take anything for granted, and the voters you call will make a difference.
