Tonight i went down to my local OFA office to help out some more, making phone calls and generally getting some positive karma in the bank.
The script tonight has us calling pholks who have previously said they'd support O, and we're trying to get them to commit to GOTV efforts over the next 3 weekends.
of course, afterwards, it's the debate watching!! woot!!1!!!1!!111
so far, i've made about two dozen calls and spoke to a handful of people. unfortunately for me, they've all been elderly ladies who just ain't comin in to GOTV.
more to come if anything exciting comes...but also, more to come if nothing else exciting happens.
5:21 PM PT: wow ~ im pretty sure this diary is now an internet meme for flailing as i posted the diary just as the site went down for 30 mins for an update.
anyway, out of the 64 people i've tried to call to, i've talked to a dozen, and only got 2 commitments.
and as I've found, it definitely seems like they gave me the 80 and older list to call as most just physically can't get out the vote.
5:36 PM PT: i mean, seriously, here's the ages of the 8 people on this one page:
82, 84, 82, 46, 73, 85, 90!!!, and 75
5:45 PM PT: and im done.
17 conversations with supporters
