Last Monday I attended our local Democratic Party steering committee meeting, where we discussed our Get Out The Vote plans for the closing month of the campaign. I pulled our target lists on VoteBuilder – a total of 35,000 names – and wrote our calling scripts. Our chair has printed the lists in packets of 1000 names, 25 pages of 40 names each. At tonight’s party meeting we’ll ask each member to take a packet and commit to calling at least one page per day until they finish their lists. Any lists that we don’t distribute tonight will be at our campaign office for our daily phone banks.
With polls tightening after last week’s debate, we grassroots Democratic activists must redouble our efforts over the next four weeks. If we maintain our enthusiasm and do our work … we can bring President Obama and our other Democratic candidates across the finish line to victory on November 6th!
