I have not posted this election cycle but have been very involved with President Obama's campaign as well as with other Democrats in Ohio.   According to the campaign, the polls are very tight in Ohio.   We will be working hard on GOTV, but I notice that people on this site assure themselves that we have a good ground game here.  We do, but we always need more help!

I am in Central Ohio, in the suburbs, and the support for Romney is scary.   People are much more vocal this year about their support for Romney than they were for McCain.  Believe it or not, I do know a few undecided voters, but for the most part, the focus now has to be on GOTV.   Not so much in my area (although that is important) but in the urban areas throughout the state.

I notice a lot of people worrying, which they should.  But do something!  Come to Ohio and help the campaign, even for a day, especially from Thursday through Tuesday, Election Day.  

As they say in a football game, it is time to leave it all out on the field!

I hsve been asked to provide some links in this diary.  Since I want to get everyone working who would be interested, I want to do so.  But the only link I know of is   Go to the volunteer page, put in an Ohio zip code near your location or where you would like to work, and you will find plenty of events and the OFA Office locations.

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.
