This week I attended the steering committee meeting for my local Democratic Executive Committee. I also helped draw up the lists and write phone bank scripts for our next outreach program, encouraging Democrats who skipped the 2010 midterm election to enroll for vote by mail. That is part of our statewide strategy, as midterms are usually decided by turnout and vote by mail enrollment is our most effective turnout tool. We’ll explain those phone banks in tonight’s DEC meeting and our members will begin making calls this week. Democrats in your area are also busy preparing for the midterms; if you haven’t yet, please contact them and ask how you can help.
