Next to voting, the most important thing you can do this election

is to turn registered voters into actual voters.


The only way we keep Ohio on the path to recovery is to mobilize our base to elect Progressive leaders. Right now, we accomplish that through voter contact and GOTV - get out the vote.

Volunteer activities based out of the West Broad office from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

3649 West Broad Street, Columbus (map link)

Here's how you can help:

1. Canvass - Recruit a friend to go door-to-door with you to contact targeted voters. These are progressives, and will 99% of the time be friendly and open to your message. Remember, we're trying to mobilize the base.

2. Phone Bank - You can phone bank from your own home with your own computer. Easy, flexible and accommodating! Again, we're targeting the base.

3. Volunteer Recruitment - Call previous 2008 volunteers and ask them to help with GOTV. More volunteers = better results!

4. Ballot Chase - Contact progressive voters who requested or received absentee ballots and encourage them to vote for progressive candidates all the way down the ballot and to return the ballots.

5. Get Out the Vote Drive - October 30 to November 2

Canvassing only out of 3649 West Broad Street -- Shifts are 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; 12:30 to 4:00 p.m.; 3:30 to 7:00 p.m.

Phone banking only out of SEIU office, 1395 Dublin Road (map link) -- Shifts are 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; 12:30 to 4:00 p.m.; 3:30 to 7:00 p.m.

The Governor enjoys wide support from Democrats, Independents and Republicans alike. Local construction CEOs, retail and banking executives, hospital administrators, philanthropic leaders and university presidents have come together in support of the Governor. The President and CEO of the Columbus Partnership, a Republican, who previously served as the economic development director and as deputy governor in Tennessee, is an enthusiastic and outspoken ally of the Governor's because of his successful efforts to attract new jobs to our state. (The Columbus Partnership is a civic organization of community, business and philanthropic leaders whose goal is to improve the economic vitality of Central Ohio.)

Despite this global recession, Ted Strickland has worked diligently, earnestly and effectively on our behalf to put Ohio on the road to recovery.

A vote for Governor Strickland is a vote for continued recovery.
