Wait. You're still waiting?

Maybe you've been putting off getting involved in the 2012 election and the Get Out the Vote (GOTV) effort until "later".

"I'll wait until after Labor Day."
"I'll wait until it's a little closer to Election Day."
"I'll wait until later."

Well, the time for waiting is over. This is it, folks. There is no "later". We have just four more days of GOTV, starting this morning, where we will be running GOTV operations across the country to get voters to the polls. We need all-hands-on-deck for this 4-day push. Our biggest need is for Election Day. On that day, we will go to the doors and/or call every single person we have identified as a Democratic supporter to make sure they have voted. We will contact them once. We will contact them twice. We may even contact them a third time until they answer the question "Have you voted yet?" with a "YES!"

This is how you win elections and we ARE going to win this one.

Please contact the Obama campaign office nearest you (click HERE to find it) to get signed up for a shift or, preferably, multiple shifts. If you're in or around the Toledo area, I'm told they are having trouble filling their shifts and could use some help. You can sign up for a shift HERE. Otherwise, get to work in your own community. We need you to get involved, folks.

There is no "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.
