Obama - Biden

North Carolinians are already going to the polls, and you can help.

Folks in our state started voting yesterday, and it's a unique opportunity for us all to make a big difference for President Obama and other Democrats, right out of the gate.

Here's where you come in: We're getting the word out about the start of early voting, and your connections with voters in this battleground state can get more people to the polls.

Reach out to the folks you know in North Carolina using Facebook and let them know they can vote, RIGHT NOW.

With just a few clicks your friends can find their nearest polling location, and your message could be what gets them out to cast a decisive vote in our critical battleground state.

In 2008, over 60 percent of the votes in North Carolina were cast before Election Day. President Obama narrowly won the state by only 14,000 votes out of 4.3 million cast -- which means critical early votes likely made the difference.

We need to make this year even bigger if we're going to win North Carolina again, and that starts with you.

So reach out to your friends in North Carolinia right now:

Barack won North Carolina in 2008 because of all the volunteers and supporters like you who worked hard to get him elected.

Early voting played an absolutely crucial role: More than 60 percent of North Carolinians voted early, and that enthusiasm put Barack over the top -- by a very small margin.

Early voting just makes sense, too. If you have a family, or commitments with work or school, it's much easier to make a plan to vote early.

That's exactly why I voted early for Barack this week. And today, you can vote early, too.

If you've already voted, I know I speak for Barack when I say thank you for your vote and your support.

Please forward this email to your friends and family to help them make it to the polls, too. Sometimes all your friends need is a little nudge from you.
