From a friend helping the Coakley campaign, there is an URGENT need for canvassers in MA to flush out those last voters tonight. If you are in or near MA, please get to a staging location listed below.

Do you have a car? You are needed to drive voters to the polls.

Can you knock doors? You are needed to knock doors ASAP.

Info is below. If you are in MA, please get out there and help. It's urgent, and with only 4 hours to go, every vote is critical.


So for anyone reading this in MA right now wondering what's going on and looking for the latest update, here is your update:

You are needed to knock on doors!

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.

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.
