    primary.  I was actually the data coordinator for my area initially, but the problem is that I cannot realistically stop into the HQ or work there on any regular basis due to my kids.  So the Obama staffers always cut the lists and I just took over the entry side of things.

    I can probably do just about anything, but I don't have a lot of flexibility to turn things around on a dime; that was always the problem.  So instead I just took over making sure the data entry got done after phone banks or canvassing, esp. in the general, driving sheets around to volunteers and working at night.  It's boring, but necessary.  I wish I could have the fun of hanging around the office all day and shooting this shit with other volunteers while working, but that was never an option since I have three little ones.

    I'm in the Philly suburbs BTW.

      And tell them you want to train to help with data

      In CA most of our folks cutting lists work from home, not the offices.  It's easy work for anyone to do who is online.  And there's not as much staff now to do it - they need more volunteers.

        I entered data for HCR phone banks as well.  I'll drop her a line and see what's going on these days.
