Now It’s Time To Get In The Streets
Now that we have passed the point where contributing money to campaigns is the best use of our resources, it is time to get boots on the ground (if you haven’t already) and volunteer to get out the vote in your district. Knocking on doors is the most effective way to reach people, so get out there! Volunteer to knock on doors in your own neighborhood if you can, and if your home district is somewhat safe (like mine here in Seattle) go to a district nearby where they need the help more. Second best is making phone calls, so go sign up with any campaign or organization that is working to get out the vote.
If you live in the Seattle area, call the Darcy Burner campaign (call, don’t email) and they will be more than happy to put you to work. I will be down at the campaign tomorrow evening making phone calls and hopefully out in the field knocking on doors in the 8th on Sunday (and back on the phones Monday), so maybe I’ll see you there. And of course, if you live in Eastern Washington, contact the Peter Goldmark campaign (call, don’t email) and help push him over the finish line. Both of these races are winnable and it is critical that we do everything we can to make sure we turn out the vote. The GOP talks a lot about their superior ground game and I just don’t buy it. Let’s prove once and for all that that’s just a load of crap!
