UPDATE: Because of this community's incredible response, we no longer need canvassers here at the downtown Cary HQ. However, if you can, rush over to 4501 Old Poole Road or 420 Hill Street in Raleigh.  They need you.

We have just three and a half hours before the polls close in North Carolina.  There are several precincts we need to hit RIGHT NOW.  We cannot wait.  Please, please ... if you are anywhere close to Old Poole Road or Hill Street in Raleigh, North Carolina, bring a flashlight and some friends and come canvass.

Unfortunately, phone calling won't do it tonight.  We need canvassers and people who can drive canvassers in the rain so they can finish their walk packets quickly.

I know this is a short diary, but I don't have time for a real diary.

UPDATED: If you can't make it to canvass, please go to a polling location and give people umbrellas, ponchos, the coat off your back ... whatever it takes to keep them in line to cast their ballots after standing in the soaking rain.  Hand out water, snacks, encouragement.  Not one person should be discouraged from casting their vote tonight.

We cannot afford to lose one single vote in one single precinct.

Thank you, Mighty Orange Force.  Thank you.

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.
