(Please excuse this re-post from yesterday; the site went down almost as soon as I hit publish!)

Three days is all the time we have left between now and the election, three more days to GO every last V we can.  In every state.  In every race.

If you live in a swing state, please canvass.

If you live near a swing state, please canvass.

If you do not live in or near a swing state, please phonebank.

Also, too, please help canvass for downticket races and local offices/issues for whatever state you call home.  The importance of local politics cannot be overstated.
If you are not able to canvass or phone bank, there is still heaps you can do, like dropping healthy, yummy snacks by campaign offices.  You can also bring snacks and such to people stuck in the ridiculously long voting booth lines.  Water, too.  Depending on the weather, holding a big ol' umbrella for folks to share could win you some friends.  Got any camping chairs?  Fewer achy feet means more votes!

Perhaps most importantly, please call your local Dem headquarters and/or OFA office and find out if they are coordinating any efforts to drive elderly, more rural, and vehicle-challenged voters to the polls.  Support such efforts in any way you can, please.  You can donate gas station gift cards, I'm sure, and maybe even the donation of a rental van.  We'd have to check on that.  

Okay, that last one wasn't the most important.  This one is:  if you can vote early, please do vote early.  Not only do you get to enjoy shorter lines and a smoother voting experience, you will also be giving other voters a shorter line on November 6th.  Plus, it frees you up for all the wonderful GOTV fun to be had!

So, please, pick a state, pick a race, pick something!  Do what you do to get your mojo on and let's do this!

Online/Remote/Virtual Phone Banking Links for Election 2012

Phone Banking Guidelines - Please read this.

Our list is targeted at available resources that allow, for example, Californians to phone bank for close races in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, and other battleground states even when online phone banking is not provided by the campaigns.  The new tool is remote/virtual phone banking.

Many campaigns don't have online phone banking like you might have experienced in the past for the Obama-Biden Campaign, which is one click away to a script and list of voters. Please contact the following Democratic campaigns that use a variety of alternative resources including Facebook applications and dedicated software.  Volunteers can log on from inside or outside the state or Congressional District.  Some campaigns will email PDFs of names and numbers to interested political activists from all over the country.  Read the directions carefully for each campaign.

Let's work hard for the next few days and on to victory on November 6th!

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.
