Action Alert! Sign Up For GOTV!

Posted by Chris Liebenthal on October 27, 2008

From Ryan Neibauer:

We are at 9 days left!! Only 9 days until the polls open and the majority of our members begin voting. I say majority because early voting has been going on for weeks, which makes it even more important to come out and volunteer TODAY and talk to other union members about Barack Obama’s Pro-Working Family policies, because folks have the opportunity to cast their ballot before November 4th. We will be contacting our members all this week; making those final contacts to Undecided members, to make sure that they get the right information before filling out their ballots.


Here are the details about volunteering this Monday, Oct 27th through Thursday, Oct 30th:


Hours: 10am – 1pm, 1pm – 4pm, 4pm – 8pm (3 hour shifts are recommended, but not required)


Milwaukee Area Labor Council, 633 South Hawley Road (Yatchak Hall), Milwaukee


Racine Labor Temple, 1840 Sycamore Avenue , Racine


UAW Local 72, 3615 Washington Road , Kenosha


You can either canvass or phone bank during these times. To sign up for a shift, please send me an email at or give me a call at (414) 333-1606.


GOTV (Get-Out-The-Vote)


This coming weekend is the FINAL WEEKEND to come out and volunteer!! It is now or never. Don’t be the one who wakes up on November 5th wishing they should have done more. Let’s leave it all out on the field. This coming weekend we will be jumping into our Get-Out-The-Vote efforts. What does GOTV mean? It means that we will be going back and reminding the people who we identified as supporters of Senator Obama and remind them to come out and vote. We will be making these contacts through phone banking and door-to-door canvassing.


Not only will you have the opportunity to talk to union members this coming weekend, you will also have a chance to join us in working directly with the Obama campaign. The Obama campaign will be using our Labor 2008 sites as GOTV staging locations. So you can hop on the phones or hit the doors to talk to our members, or you can go right out and knock on some doors for the Obama campaign directly.


These contacts are so important!! All of our work leads up to this final weekend. We must go back and remind our members who are supportive of Senator Obama to go out and VOTE on Tuesday, November 4th.
