President and Vice President Elect, that's what we'll be calling these gentlemen in less than 20 days -- That is, of course, if we all do our part.
It is arguably more crucial to "Get Out The Vote" this campaign season than at any other time in recent American history. Although the Obama-Biden ticket is looking good in the polls, we can't take anything for granted.
So, do what you can. Dick and I will be registering people to vote up until Oct 20th, the deadline in California to register to vote in the November election.
Here are some ways you can get involved in the Los Angeles Area:
The Grove Voter Registration & Volunteer Recruitment
The voter registration table at the Grove is an ongoing event every Sunday from 1p.m.-7:00 PM. Volunteers work in 2 hour shifts with 1-2 other volunteers to register new voters, helping people to re-register, and encouraging folks to join our volunteer efforts. We are provided a table and some chairs at the Grove. We sell buttons and bumper stickers, tee shirts and get the word out about the Obama campaign to shoppers. It's fun and relatively easy! After your shift you can enjoy a movie, have dinner or shop!
