And with only about 30 days left until the election it's time to roll up your sleeves and get busy.

Turnout is going to be a decisive factor in this race so GOTV efforts are crucial. In terms of results canvassing is one of the most effective GOTV tools; a Yale Study showed that door-to-door canvassing can raise turn out between 7%-12% If you're in the NYC area and would like to make this kind a difference join me and actNOW this Saturday, October 7th on a canvassing trip to Stamford, CT.
