  •  There are a number of options (none)
    Even at this late date, there are a few options for getting the word out.

    1. Calling and email trees -- just about all Democratic voters know other Democratic voters.  The Kaine campaign can call a number of campaign workers and voters, and have them spread the word to neighbors.  Blogs can play a part in getting this ball rolling, of course, as people who read the notice here and who know others in Virginia can call and/or email those people.

    2. Direct email notification -- if the Kaine campaign has a substantial email list, they can get the word out very, very quickly.  This is a big reason for campaigns to amass email lists, by the way.

    3. Robocalls -- if the Kain campaign either has a calling center of access to robocalling firms, they can have calls made to large numbers of Democratic and Independent voters to notify them of the flyer.

    4. Press outlets -- there are still a couple of press cycles to get the word out.

    5. GOTV/Grassroots/Boots on the ground -- spread the word via door-to-door get-out-the-vote efforts (campaign workers and outside groups) and word of mouth from neighbor-to-neighbor

    6. If we were Republicans who didn't have scruples, we could also use Church pulpits on Sunday to spread the word.  However, this of course would be unethical and probably illegal, so we'll leave that to the Kilgore campaign to pull crap like that.
    •  A number for volunteers (none)
      especially for NOVA folks or out of staters:

      703-720-2600 Northern Virginia Volunteers

      Got this from our county's rep from the campaign, who is setting up phone banks in Fredricksburg, south of DC.

      BTW, Spotsylvania and Stafford counties are some of the only places Jerry is doing better than dead even.

      Please call now.

      •  Know what ... (none)
        while squeeking out a win would be a nice result, what would make me thrilled is not a "Bush mandate" with the political capital of a fraudelent 51%, but a real Democratic mandate and sign of change with a 55 (or 60) percent win Tuesday.

        I am on break from walking neighborhoods with my six-year old who is convinced that the nation will be on the right track as soon as "George Bush is sent behind bars for a long time out ..."  From her mouth to G-d's ears ...
