Dear MoveOn member,
Imagine waking up after a long election night, eyes puffy and still in disbelief that Romney won Florida to seal his victory. I get chills at the thought.
But what's worse is waking up thinking you could've done more, wishing you'd dug deeper to help turnout Obama voters.
If you don't want to wake up with puffy eyes, serious regrets, or a Romney victory, here are a few reasons to turn it up a notch:
1. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Romney and Obama are in a "statistical tie" in Florida and Virginia.1
2. Karl Rove's American Crossroads is flooding the airwaves in swing states with $16 million in anti-Obama ads.2
3. The Romney campaign is bragging about a big October surprise on foreign policy.3
In addition to all this, the GOP's war on voting rights could keep tens of millions from voting.4 With just 34 days left, that's enough time for Romney to turn the tables.
So we're fighting back. MoveOn members coast-to-coast are making calls to get the volunteers we need in swing states, like Florida and Virginia, so that no Obama voter is left behind. Our member-to-member calling system is easy to use and lets people anywhere have a big impact on the race.
Can you sign up to spend 15 minutes making election calls?
Calling other MoveOn members is a great experience, and one member talking to another is one of the best ways to sign up volunteers and do your part in this election. Through our Voters Rising program, we've already signed up members in swing states for nearly 10,000 volunteer shifts to help get out the vote. If we can make even more calls, we'll be able to recruit enough volunteers where we need it most: states like Colorado, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and more.
Every vote is going to count in this close election, and every volunteer we sign up increases our chances to win. Can you sign up to call other MoveOn members as we enter the final stretch?Yes, I'll call.
Thanks for all you do.
