Mobilizing Milwaukee voters will be critical in unseating Governor John Doe. The turnout in Milwaukee county in 2008 for Obama was 316,916 and in 2010 the turnout dropped to 209,929 for a dropoff of 106,987. Barack Obama won by 14%. If we are to win this election these voters must turnout. Statewide 400,000 voters that voted in 2008 did not cast a ballot in 2010.
This is a great opportunity to get out our Democratic base. Absentee voting is already strong and all indications are that a very effective GOTV operation is going to be in full swing.
Come to Milwaukee and be a part of a movement during the final GOTV campaign. We started this as a movement and that energy is what can tip the scales in our favor.
I spoke with Caitlin Jeidy who is a field organizer for the Democratic Party and she has indicated that their greatest needs are for phone banking at the 231 E. Wisconsin Avenue location on June 2nd-4th and Canvassing on June 5th at the 7984 W. Appleton Avenue on June 5th.
If you would like to volunteer contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 608-516-8358. She is currently planning her staffing levels and GOTV activities so contact her sooner rather than later.
