Grassroots volunteers are going to make the difference in places that could be decided by a handful of votes next Tuesday. Lucky for Iowa, people like Murph are on the team. Last year, Murph got a call from a local organizer asking him to get involved. He showed up at the Bettendorf office the next day, and now he’s made more than 16,000 calls for President Obama.
Why does Murph think making calls is such a great way to impact this election?
"If folks have got some time—one hour or two hours, one day a week or two days a week, whatever they can do—it's going to pay off in the long run by getting the President re-elected.
“I thought it was really important for me to get involved—it’s the one voice we have about what is going to happen. All I do is what is important to me, so I'll do what I can and do my own part in helping him win the election. I can go home and sit in front of the TV for four or five hours, or I can be down here trying to make a difference. This is what I love doing."
Even if you don’t have a lot of time these days, take Murph’s advice and give just one hour (or even a few minutes) today to push this campaign to victory in the final week. Help get out the vote in battleground states right now—check out the Obama 2012 online call tool and dial away.
