You’ve probably heard a lot about the 9-3-1 program—our exclusive opportunity for North Carolina volunteers to get a guaranteed seat to see President Obama deliver his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
It’s a pretty cool opportunity to be part of history—but time is running out to complete your 3 shifts and get your ticket.
Cecilia and Keith, a married couple from Raleigh, have been volunteering together in their community since they learned about the 9-3-1 program. For Cecilia, the opportunity to see the President in Charlotte was the extra push to get her out the door and into her neighborhood to register voters:
“We have one more shift to go. We were planning on volunteering anyways, but when we heard about 9-3-1, it was the extra motivation that showed us that now was the time to get involved. Plus, the chance to be part of history and see President Obama give his acceptance speech—how can you turn that down?”
Keith knows how important North Carolina is to reelecting President Obama—and that the only way to succeed is if everyone gets involved:
“Registering voters is one of the most important things that you can do, so doing that with the chance to go to the Convention is a perfect combination. Being in North Carolina, we know how important our support for the President is, and how lucky we are to have this opportunity to be part of history. Everyone should be getting involved.”
This weekend is one of the last opportunities to volunteer and get your seat in Charlotte. Find an event in your neighborhood this weekend and get your ticket to history—time runs out on August 18th!
