Obama for America
10:40 p.m. ET
This weekend: Lend a hand in Florida



When November 6th rolls around, I want polling places to be packed with people who are fired up and ready to vote for President Obama. I'm sure you do, too.

So let's make that happen in Pennsylvania, where literally a few votes could decide this election.

Organizers there are doing a great job reaching out to voters, but they'd love a hand from you.

This coming Saturday and Sunday June 16th and 17th, is a national weekend of action where folks from New York will travel together to Pennsylvania and other battleground states to help register and reach out to voters.

Sign up now to join, and a local organizer will be in touch about this trip and others to come:

In some states we'll be registering voters, and in others we'll be talking with people one on one about the President's vision for our nation, and helping them get ready for this election. Across the country, we'll be working alongside some of the best local organizers out there, and lending an extra hand.

The energy around this election is building in Pennsylvania, and a lot of people there just need a small nudge from someone like you to get them to register and to step up to be a part of this campaign.

It's a chance to pitch in on the ground where it matters most -- and with just a few short months left until polling places start to open their doors, we've all got to move on this one now.

We'll help you find a carpool that's meeting up near you. And if you'll need a place to stay, we'll try to line you up with a supporter who has a spare room or couch. So don't let the logistics stop you -- because the conversations you'll have with people this weekend might be what decides whether they're standing in those poll lines in November, or even better, whether they step up and volunteer.

Sign up now for the next trip to Pennsylvania:

Nothing about this race is guaranteed.

Our opponents are counting on a billion dollars of spending from outside groups and corporations -- they will have more money to spend than we do.

But this campaign has always been based on the idea that ordinary people deserve a seat at the table.

That's why I'm meeting up with supporters for dinner throughout the election, and I'm hoping you'll join me at the next one.

Any donation you make today will automatically enter you for the chance to be there.

You're one of more than 2 million people who own a piece of this campaign. Thank you. I'm proud of that, and I hope you are, too.

If you're selected to join me at the next dinner, the campaign will cover airfare and accommodations for you and a guest:

Gabby and Ron need you

--

Tomorrow is the crucial special election for Gabby Giffords' seat in Congress.

Ron Barber -- Gabby's former district director -- is in a tight race with radical Republican Jesse Kelly. There are more registered Republicans than Democrats in this district so we know the race will be close.

Right now, we're calling Democratic voters and reminding them to get out to vote tomorrow - and we need your help:

Stand with Ron at this critical time: make 10 phone calls to Get Out the Vote on our online phone bank tool [url]

We can't afford to lose Gabby's seat to a radical Republican who would go after everything that she stands for. Your phone calls to voters in Arizona could be the difference.

Stand with Gabby and Ron, use our online phone bank tool to Get Out the Vote:

Thanks for all you do,

Brynne

Brynne Craig DCCC Field Director

The online phone bank runs until 10pm Eastern 7pm Arizona time tonight.

You can also make calls tomorrow on Election Day from noon Eastern 9am Arizona time until 10pm Eastern 7pm Arizona time .
