Tonight, I convinced an undecided voter to vote for Biden!

I've been making phone calls for the Biden campaign and coordinated Democratic Party campaign for months now. I'll have a number of calls in which I helped people figure out how and where to vote. A couple of young voters thought they could vote online, and I've explained how and where they actually do vote. But tonight I talked to an undecided voter whose mind I successfully changed! He is a recent immigrant. I asked him what he cared most about, and he said jobs. I told him some of Biden's policies to promote job growth and a living wage. We talked about COVID, and then I talked about how important it is to me that Biden be elected: I've been making calls for months, not because I like it, but because it's really important to me that Joe Biden be elected president. He said that my passion convinced him and he would be voting for Biden. Now that made my night, and all the other days and nights I've spent calling.

GOTV makes a difference!

Poll: Are you volunteering/donating to the campaign?

Just a quick poll about GOTV for the upcoming election. If you're not already volunteering, please join us for a shift this week. https://www.mobilize.us/
We really need to turn out every last supporter to win. People can say they support Biden to a pollster, but if they don't turn out to vote, it's for naught. Even if you're donating, I urge to take a shift making calls if you are at all able.

Thank you to everyone volunteering and/or donating! Thanks to everyone voting for Biden/Harris!
