"...the election four years ago wasn't about me. It was about you. My fellow citizens—you were the change."1
He's right, we are the change. President Obama won in 2008 because of people like us—including a million MoveOn volunteers—and he absolutely cannot win again without that kind of support.
Here's the thing: we don't have to drop everything and volunteer full time. But if too many of us don't volunteer and sit this one out, we'll lose this election. That's why we're asking you to commit to helping out for even a couple of hours before Election Day.
Today, all you have to do is say "I'm in." You don't even have to know yet when you can volunteer—just pledge to make election calls three times between now and November and we'll follow up with everything you need to get involved. Can we count you in?
Every call you make counts and together it can really add up. You'll be recruiting MoveOn members in swing states to join our new "Voters Rising" election program—which will get crucial swing state voters to the polls by partnering with the AFL-CIO to run the largest independent voter turnout program in America.
Together we'll combine the power of 19 million members with a revolutionary new method that uses polling and statistical modeling to make canvassing voters over five times more effective than before.
So, can you pledge to join in and help make calls before the election?
Thanks for all you do.
