Vote 2010 Kickoff!

Columbus Vote 2010 Kickoff

Saturday, June 5

11 a.m.

Columbus/Grandview Heights Coordinated Campaign Office, 747 Chambers Road, Columbus, OH 43212

The November election is only five months away. Organizing for American has identified a clear path to success: Get as many as possible of the 15 million folks who voted for the first time in 2008 back to the polls. Engaging them early in the year is the best way to ensure their participation, so on June 5 OFA volunteers will be knocking on doors in our area and across the U.S. and calling first-time 2008 voters to ask them to commit to voting again in November.
