A perfect example was Common Ground music festival AT Adado Riverfront Park. For an entire week the Summer Organizers and their volunteers listened to music and brought over 70 new voices into the process. They also made sure to ask everyone they encountered to be IN for Obama 2012.
“We had great volunteers come out and give everything they had, all the attendees were asked to register to vote and to sign a ’I’m IN‘ Card at least once. It was inspiring to see the separation of the children from the parents when he or she would register to vote and the parents would be against it,” said Chad G.
Summer Organizer Caitlin O., who works part-time at Chili’s, registered voters on her way to work. Chad manned tables at Michigan State University and Lansing Community College all summer long to register and re-register students that have moved since the last time they voted. Summer Organizer Kevin K. registered voters at the CATA station downtown. All of them fully believe the voters they have empowered will be part of the margin of victory in 2012.
