ATTENTION ALL CALIFORNIAN, ARIZONA AND UTAH DEMS--SPREAD THE WORD!!!!!!  WE ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF VOLUNTEERS!!!

We have 48 hours to change the direction of our country.  President Clinton said yesterday that this election will be won on the ground here in Nevada.

The question is can you live with more of the same.  If not - WE NEED YOUR HELP.  We need to win Nevada and we CANNOT do it without your help on Monday or Tuesday.  In Nevada every vote counts - and this whole election could come down to the votes you secure for us on Tuesday.

We do have buses leaving from L.A. on Monday evening at 7 PM. Buses will be picking up from Norwalk, North Hollywood, Redondo Beach, and Montclare. Buses will be returning both Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning. The cost is $20.

If you want to secure a place on one of these buses and leaving from L.A. tomorrow evening you MUST be in contact with Angela Brau at 714-402-0079 or Scott Haas at 562-652-5836 asap.

Additionally, airfares from Las Vegas to Los Angeles for coming out TODAY (Sunday) or TOMORROW (MONDAY) and returning TUESDAY or WEDNESDAY is $165-$171 roundtrip on NWA and American. (These prices were found using Orbitz). Jet Blue has flights all day Monday and Wednesday for $97 each way between Oakland and Las Vegas.  The website is www.jetblue.com.

If you are not coming on the bus trip, please let us know you are arriving. You can call Neerja Sharma on 702 737 8683 or e-mail nsharma@nvdems.com, or Ellen Scott at Escott@nvdems.com cell: 847 899 7726.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    •  What? (none)
      I have CA volunteers staying with me in Arizona this weekend who were turned away from NV because they had so many volunteers there. In fact, I'm working locally with Election Protection this weekend through Tuesday, and many of the poll monitors are likewise CA volunteers turned aside from NV by the state party and other ground campaign groups who are swamped with volunteers.

      It certainly could be that more volunteers are needed in NV, but I recommend people call ahead and make personal contact with coordinators in NV before making plans to travel to NV to help with GOTV over the next 72 hours.

    The Jetblue plans really don't work for me.
    I think I can only make it to Reno, too hard to get to Las Vegas from the bay area. :(

    They do need people, there's room on the bus.

    I'll be occupying one seat on the Norwalk bus.
