CA-48: How You Can Help

Posted by DavidNYC

The special election in CA's 48th CD has flow a bit below the radar, but election day is just a week away - next Tuesday, December 6th. Our guy in the race is Steve Young. As Paul Hackett (and, I'd say, Stephanie Herseth and Ben Chandler) proved, anything can happen in a special election.

But as this diary points out, hope is not a strategy. If you want to help out, the campaign needs people to do "virtual" phonebanking - ie, phonebanking from home. This is an easy way to get involved, and making calls can actually even be fun. And if you have a cell phone with free evenings/weekends, it'll only cost you your time. So if you want to become a virtual phonebanker, e-mail the campaign and they'll set you up.

Of course, if you're in the area and want to help out, foot soldiers are always crucial for final get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts. The HQ is in Irvine and can be reached at (949) 640-4400.

Now this is what I'm talking about!! There is nothing more frustrating than hearing about a campaign in trouble at the other end of the country and being unable to do anything about it. I'm not sure who came up... [Read More]

I virtual phone banked last night. Pretty enjoyable...I seriously recommend everyone to do this. Steve Young is a great candidate, think of the message it would send to get this guy elected out of Orange County!! If YOU read this and do not phone bank at least 20 calls afterwards, you are giving up. Don't give up. Don't ever give up. If we have everyone with access to a 50-state call plan make 20 calls in the next two days, think about the dent we could make! This is about coming together as Progressives! Letss do this!
