Obama for America
2:32 a.m. ET
Join us for an early vote event in North Carolina

--

Starting today, you can vote early in North Carolina.

I hope you can make it out right away, because early voting is how we won in 2008. Sixty percent of North Carolinians voted early in that election. It's a big part of how we'll win again this time.

So I'm asking for your vote -- today.

Find out where to vote:

You should know that early voting lasts through November 3rd in North Carolina, in case you can't cast your ballot today. You can register and vote at the same time -- if you plan to register, just bring proof of address.

This is my last campaign, so this may be the last time I can say: thank you for your vote.

"Binders full of women"



"Binders full of women."

That's what Mitt Romney offered up as his solution to leveling the playing field for women in the workplace.

A binder didn't help me get equal pay for equal work at Goodyear, and it's not helping the women across the country who are making 77 cents for every dollar a man gets. That's no plan for equality -- and American women deserve better.

The "binders" comment is new, but leveling the playing field has never been part of Romney's agenda. He was opposed to the Fair Pay Act that bears my name. He refuses to take a stand on the Paycheck Fairness Act. Romney wants to defund Planned Parenthood and put a politician between a woman and her health decisions -- he'll drag our rights back in time.

President Obama gets it. He has worked tirelessly to make sure women have a fair shot. His comment Tuesday night shows the stark contrast between him and Romney: "These are not just women's issues. These are family issues. These are economic issues. And one of the things that makes us grow as an economy is when everybody participates and women are getting the same fair deal as men are."

We've got 19 days left to make sure every single woman understands the clear choice in this election.

Use the campaign's call tool right now to reach out to other women. Get them to vote and fight alongside you for the candidate who's got our back:

A special message from the President



Monday, October 22nd, marks the most important day of the election in the Badger State so far. It's the first day Wisconsinites can cast their vote in person for President Obama.

Watch this special message to Wisconsinites from President Obama, then sign up to attend a Be the First to Vote event on Monday.

Getting supporters to cast their ballots before Election Day means we'll have a head start -- we'll be able to devote more energy and resources to our ground game in the final weeks of the election.

That's why on Monday we need you to help spread the word about early voting in Wisconsin, and that's why we need you to be the first to vote.

So listen to President Obama and come join us:

Together, we can win Wisconsin.

Obama - Biden --

The final three weeks of an election are like nothing else.

It's when we put aside all of the talk about what might happen in this race, roll up our sleeves, and do what it takes to win, because this election has enormous consequences for women.

So we have to show up and help get out the vote for our guy.

The hard work and dedication of volunteers across the country is what will help put President Obama and other Democrats over the top.

Supporters are coming out for shifts morning, noon, and night this Sunday -- to make calls to our neighbors, and to knock on doors to talk with voters.

We need you there, too, for as many shifts as you can take -- because this race is neck and neck, and if we don't step up right now for the final stretch, we could have a lot of regrets on November 7th.

Sign up for at least two shifts in Arlington this weekend.

What: Weekend of action

Meet at: 4401 Wilson Blvd Arlington, VA 22203

When: Sunday, October 21st Starting at 10:00 am

Or check out all the other events near you this weekend.

With less than three weeks until Election Day, there's not much time to get this right and make sure women are doing everything we can to re-elect President Obama and support Democrats up and down the ticket.

We can't afford to stay home -- the stakes are too high for us and our families. Mitt Romney wants to overturn Roe vs. Wade, denying women the right to choose, and defund Planned Parenthood.

He hasn't been willing to stand up for the Paycheck Fairness Act, and his tax cuts on the wealthy would come at the expense of our families' economic security.

President Obama is the only presidential candidate advocating for women's rights.

So we have to get out there and get his back. There will be tons of Obama supporters out in force this Sunday -- brand-new volunteers, and people with years of experience under their belts. It will be fast-paced, and the amount of ground we can cover in a matter of hours will leave you breathless. But if you're anything like me, you'll be ready to do it all over again as soon as your shift is through.

Don't miss a minute.

Sign up for one or more volunteer shifts now -- and let's win this election:

Hey - can you join the Campus Callers?



I learned early on from working with President Obama that in politics, as in basketball, you win as a team and you lose as a team.

When it's your turn to step up to the line, you do what whatever's needed to get the job done.

Students like you can decide this election -- period.

But you've got to take the first step and get involved.

That's why I'm inviting you to join Campus Callers, a special group of students across the country making calls on behalf of the President.

There's too much at stake for us to sit back in this election: issues like student loan reform, access to affordable health care, and an economy in which everyone plays by the same rules.

I've had the honor of watching President Obama fight every single day to make sure that everyone gets a fair shake -- like doubling funding for Pell Grants so more students can afford college, and signing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to make sure women can fight back when they don't receive equal pay in the workplace.

This is our one shot at shaping what our next four years look like. We've got to do what it takes to win.

And that means getting involved. Join Campus Callers and help get the President's message out today:

We send a lot of emails - here's why



Ever wonder why we send you so many emails asking for grassroots donations? I know it's a lot -- but let me describe for you what the alternative looks like:

We just learned that Mitt Romney collected an astounding $X million from lobbyists during the last fundraising quarter, including lobbyists for pharmaceutical companies, big oil, and one of Switzerland's largest banks.

From the day that Barack Obama decided to run for president in 2007, he has refused to accept campaign contributions from special-interest PACs and Washington lobbyists. Instead, he relies on you to build this campaign -- and is accountable only to you.

We're in a dead heat with Romney and there's very little time left. Help make sure ordinary folks decide this election -- not big banks and oil companies.

Please make a donation of $X or more to re-elect Barack Obama today:

[url]

When we get into talk of lobbyists, PACs, and super PACs, it's easy to just want to tune out and give up completely on what feels like a hopelessly broken political process.

But here's why we can't: Mitt Romney not only accepts big checks from these lobbyists, but as president he'd hire those same lobbyists in top-level positions. A report just this week said: "Industry insiders believe that Mitt Romney will unshackle the revolving door and give lobbyists a shot at the government jobs their Democratic counterparts have been denied for the past four years."

We could get the head of the junk food industry as the Secretary of Health and Human Services. An oil executive as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency.

I'm damn proud of the fact that President Obama implemented the strictest rules ever to close the revolving door between government and special interests and restrict the money-for-influence machine that too often dominates Washington.

It was the right thing to do -- and unless we do what we need to do these next 19 days, we'll see a return to the same old way of doing business.

This year's election is a test of the idea that ordinary people can still be the most powerful voice in our democracy. We've come too far to fail now.

Think about that -- and please make a donation to this truly grassroots campaign today:

$166 a paycheck

Romney-Ryan Friend,

Taxes on the middle class are going up, and it's Barack Obama's fault. Thanks to the President's new spending proposals, middle-class families can now look forward to a $X annual tax increase.

That means, if you're like the majority of Americans who get paid twice a month, $X will be taken out of every single paycheck.

We need to get our fiscal house in order it's an economic and moral imperative. Americans deserve a president who won't bury their children and grandchildren under mountains of debt.

When Mitt Romney is president, he will cut spending, restore our AAA credit rating, and set us on a path to a balanced budget.

His Plan for a Stronger Middle Class will lead to a recovery that creates 12 million jobs and grows the economy on average by 4% per year.

We can't afford to wait. Please contribute $X today to help elect Mitt Romney and get America's fiscal house in order.

Thank you,

Paul Ryan

This election

--

The Democratic Party urgently needs your help.

We're just weeks from the most important election in a generation and every single thing Democrats like you and I spent a lifetime fighting for is on the line.

Republican Super PACs are pounding President Obama and Democratic candidates with millions of dollars of vicious attack ads. And, they could tip the balance of the election for Tea Party extremists.

That would be a disaster for America and we can't let it happen. We must close the funding gap.

That's why I'm urging you donate $X or more to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee DCCC today.

This election presents a clear choice:

Either we can continue with another two years of Republicans in Congress blocking President Obama's agenda – or we can elect a Democratic majority that will stand with the President to make real progress in his second term.

Democrats will protect Medicare and strengthen environmental protections. Health care reform will be fully implemented and critical investments will be made in jobs and education to strengthen the middle-class.

It's up to you and me to make this happen.

Please rush an emergency contribution right away while there's still time.

President Obama needs a new Democratic Majority to get America moving again.

Thank you,

Last night, President Barack Obama came. He saw. And he kicked butt.

And while President Obama thrashed Mitt Romney on everything from Planned Parenthood funding to tax breaks for billionaires, Romney looked more awkward than the Queen in a cow chip tossing contest.

But today, polls are still tied in critical swing states. If you want President Obama to pull ahead and win the White House and Senate, I need your urgent support this second.

The final FEC deadline of this election is in just 10 hours. Can you contribute $X immediately?Your gift will be triple matched until midnight because this is about the last time you can effectively impact races.

By midnight, we must raise and immediately rush $X in emergency funding to deadlocked battlegrounds where Romney's allies are outspending us by 58%. If we fall short, Republicans could take over the White House and Senate in 20 days.

Did you watch the debate on Tuesday? If I had to guess, you were on the edge of your seat, snacking nervously, cheering the President on – and maybe yelling at the screen once in a while. Well, the President came through, big time.

But now the tables are turned. No, President Obama isn't sitting on his couch with a bowl of popcorn tweeting about you while you read this email. But just like we were counting on him on Tuesday, he's counting on you today – counting on you to help him win and prevent a Republican takeover of the Senate.

And here's the difference: You can't influence a debate from the comfort of your couch. But you can decide an election – if you act right now.

Debates are important. But what's going to break the ties in critical states like Ohio and Wisconsin isn't something President Obama can say – it's something you and only you can do.

That's why, even if he isn't yelling at the screen while you read this, the President is rooting for you to make a donation right now.

So remember: Fight like our future depends on it, work like there's no tomorrow, and give like the President's watching.

He delivered. Now it's our turn. Click here and do your part.
