Come celebrate with the Livingston County Democrats on election night
Livingston County Democrats are conceding nothing, and they have been working hard knocking on doors, making phone calls and stuffing envelopes from soon-to-be President Obama all the way down to Democratic township board candidates since last spring.
There is still a change to volunteer and make a positive difference in your community and the world. Volunteers are still needed to phone bank and go door-to-door in the all-important Get out the Vote activities. We Know Sen. Barack Obama is leading in all the polls, but if we don't get out and vote it's all for naught. Do not be complacent. For somebody who has done a lot of phone banking and knocking on doors, it can be a fun experience. The good news is the weather is perfect, and you will only be dealing with the many Obama supporters in Livingston County to remind them to vote. You will not have to deal with the kind of McCain supporters who would take candy away from children and are rude to dedicated volunteers.
Shifts are available today from Noon to 4 p.m., and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tomorrow, Election Day, shits are available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Noon to 4 p.m., and 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Post-8 p.m.
After the polls close at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, volunteers in the post-8 p.m. shift will go to the precincts and keep voters in line to vote rather than allowing them to become discouraged and leave. The party also needs people on Election Day to be poll challengers and to give rides to the polls. I was a poll watcher/challenger in 2004 and 2006, and it was such a positive experience and I got along so well with the election inspectors at my polling place, that I took the next step and am now an election inspector.
Once we have done all that we can to get our people elected and get this country headed back in the right direction, join all the volunteers and supporters to watch the results come in. An election return watching party will be held at the joint headquarters of the Livingston County Democratic Party/Barack Osama's Campaign for Change at 10321 E. Grand River, Suite 600, of the Fonda Place Office Park, in Brighton, just east of U.S. 23.There will be soup, chili, lasagna and soft drinks available. Bring a dish or snack to share. I have been to many of these potlucks, and I can tell you this, Democrats can cook.
For information or to volunteer for a shift, please call the office at (810) 229-4212, email at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by the office at 10321 E. Grand River, Suite 600.
