As you've probably already read from d-day's post, last night's opening of our Culver City Obama headquarters was an unbelievable success. Over 2,000 people braved rush-hour traffic and spotty parking to attend the Obama HQ's grand opening. The campaign told me they signed up over 500 volunteers last night. I met folks who came from as far away as Long Beach and Chatsworth to be there.

This is all great news because the Obama campaign has tasked Southern California with turning out the vote in our sister state Nevada. In 2004, Kerry lost this important swing state by only 2%. Our goal in 2008 is to win it by 2%.

We need you! We need your energy, your skills , and your willingness to really help out.  We are looking for people like you to help fill out our volunteer leadership teams in the 36th congressional district.   We are looking for smart, energetic people to help organize phonebanks and trips to Las Vegas.

Here's how you can get involved:


This is the best thing you can do to learn about events, phone banks and trips to Nevada. Once you sign up, you can easily locate what's happening in your neighborhood simply by entering your zip code.

Camp Obama trainings offer an in-depth look at the strategies and techniques that have driven this campaign and prepare you to lead our Get Out The Vote efforts in Nevada as a Deputy Field Organizer.By participating in Camp Obama, you'll get the kind of experience that Barack got as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago, where he learned that real change happens from the bottom up.

Camp Obama is your chance to step up and become a leader in this movement.

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.
