Last Saturday, I joined thousands of volunteers from across the Nation, who gathered together in their communities to take part in the Obama campaign’s first Voter Registration Day of Action. Volunteers and summer organizers went out in full force to register voters in major cities across Maryland.
Here in Montgomery County, over a hundred volunteers spent the morning talking to constituents and succeeding in registering over a hundred and thirty five voters in five different locations. In addition, we were also able to collect over an outstanding two hundred and twenty five signatures of people pledging their support and time for the President.
By the end of this hot June morning, we returned sunburned but energized by the uplifting conversations we had. From single mothers to college students, we saw enthusiasm shine through ahead of the 2012 elections and excitement about voting next year.
At the end of our day of action, many of our volunteers couldn't wait to till next month, where we'll be heading down to Virginia to help register voters.
If you'd like to join us next month for our second day of action, please give us a call at (240) 242-5750, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
