Election Day is going to be nuts this year - and someone needs you. You betcha they do.

Obama needs you, Lautenberg needs you, the person running to represent you in Congress needs you, your local candidates really need you, and the democratic process needs you.

With a record number of voters anticipated to come out on November 4th, every candidate needs more volunteers than ever that day - as many as they can get - to provide visibility for the campaign, to serve as challengers at the polls, to staff the phones to get out the vote, to drive voters to the polls, to go door-to-door to make sure supporters remember it's election day, and to deal with the unexpected things every campaign should expect will happen on election day. They need you.

It's time to ask off work for Tuesday, November 4th. You'll be glad you did.

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.
