Holy Shit! I don't swear much, but here in Cincinnati we have seen an amazing ground effort. My area has seen incredible amounts of commitments for the President and the early vote push has sent a majority of our voters to the pools.

The UC event here today was a great sucess; people were waiting in line at 2:00 for a 8:00 speach.

Hamilton county is trending for Obama, but we still need to make sure that everyone votes; don't forget the 537 votes that won GWB the 2000 election. Every vote counts!

 If you can volunteer your time in Cincinnati, please email Chris Brown at We are so close, get out there! 2 days left.


I wish to give a quick update from an Obama volunteer here in Hamilton County (Cincinnati) OH.

The volunteers of the east side of Cincinnati have been working very hard to canvass the neighborhoods of Hyde Park, Oakley, East Walnut Hills, Mount Lookout and Norwood over the past few months. (for those not familiar with the area, these neighborhoods were integral in Obama's majority of the county in 2008) I'm very excited to report that we have seen a 3 to 1 margin of support for Obama in this region, and many of our supporters have already voted and our turning out to volunteer for GOTV to finish our work and aid in other districts in the city.

Over the past two weeks, we have been pushing "undecided" voters. We have had overwhelming response to the last two debates and have found that Republican supporters are less enthusiastic about this election.

While it is close, the crucial areas of Cincinnati are once again rallying around Obama.  I believe that we will deliver the county and Ohio for Obama in November. We are learning of support for Sherrod Brown, but the Democratic ticket correlation is not certain.

We could still certainly use the help here in Cincinnati for GOTV. Anyone close to the area who would like to volunteer, please respond to this post and I will make sure you are contacted.

Canvass Captain, Hyde Park

Thu Nov 01, 2012 at  8:00 PM PT: I wanted to thank everyone for the incredible support you all shared with me. This community is absolutely amazing, just the best.

This weekend did show me that our initial information we discovered through canvassing was correct. Hamilton County is not only trending, but shows strong support toward Obama. We have over 150 volunteers scheduled for the Saturday, and I wanted to thank everyone that helped with this recruitment. The excitement among Democrats in my area is palpable.

 A special thank you must go to ShoshannaD,you got us quite a few volunteers for this weekend!

Barack the Vote!

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.
