Getting out and talking to voters is the closest connection we have to our democracy.
I volunteered in 2008, and it was then I realized: the connection we build talking to people at their doors or on the phone makes it more real for them. They see how committed and energized we are about helping re-elect President Obama. They see that what they have to say is being heard — and they realize that we all have a vested interest in this election.
It’s also rewarding for volunteers - and a lot of fun. We need to get as many people out there as we can, talking to voters about President Obama’s plans for the next four years and why they need to get to the polls. Every vote counts.
