    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 caitlinj@wisdems.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.

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.

    there will be no 9-12 shift on Sunday.

    also, most of the canvass locations are also phone bank locations.  folks should plan to go to the location most convenient to them, regardless of the activities listed here.  the less time you spend driving to your location, the more time you're talking to voters

    I've been doing some things for Barrett office, some for the Dems, but mostly I've been doing work with We Are Wisconsin and the labor council.  Have been signed up for hours all the way through election day for over 2 weeks now.

    Polls are getting much better now that there is near parity in the ads.  Too bad our side had so little money it had to be concentrated in the last 2 weeks, but that's just the way it is when mega bucks are all on the other side.   The last debate was also awesome and I'm hoping for info on post-debate polls.  

    There already is class warfare in America. Unfortunately, the rich are winning.
