Canvassers are a great bang for your buck, GOTV-speaking. On average, eery eight doors turns out a vote we wouldn't otherwise get. They pick off all those folks who have bad phone numbers, no answering machines, or aren't good on the phone. If you've been making calls, you know there are a LOT of wrong numbers for voters we need. We can catch them at their doors, especially as they get home from work.
Please go. Out-of-state folks, keep burning up the phones. But folks in MA, please go help deliver voters to the polls, and deliver a victory to Martha Coakley.
One last thought, then back to the phones... A LOT of folks I called to GOTV these past few days said they planned to go after work. It's really important that they come home to another reminder, and someone knocks on their door to flush them out.
Especially if they've been watching the news today, it's important to remind them that every vote matters, and that we can win if they get out and vote.
