Go Volunteer!

Just got the following from the Obama campaign. If you've got time today, head out and help out at the polls.

We need your help right now.

Thousands of Virginia voters are standing in the rain waiting to get into their polling places. We have to make sure they stay in line and cast their ballots.

The outcome in Virginia is going to be incredibly close, and could decide the entire election. We're asking you to bring umbrellas, tarps, raincoats, ponchos -- and all the warm beverages you can carry -- to local volunteers that are helping voters standing in the rain.

Find your nearest volunteer hub:

We can't afford to wake up tomorrow wishing we had done just a little bit more to win this election. Don't let rain keep us from victory when so much is at stake -- especially in Virginia.

Please forward this email to your friends and family, and make sure they get out to vote tonight.

Thank you,

Obama for America

P.S. -- Polls close in Virginia at 7:00 p.m. Make sure everyone knows that as long as you are in line by 7:00 p.m., you can vote. Find or confirm your polling location at

I tried my damndest to canvas this weekend, but when we got to Richmond (we were sent "far into Virginia" by the D.C. office), they didn't have any work for us to do! Too many volunteers is a good thing, I think. Even if it meant an unnecessary Civic Road Trip 08.
