2 Then, forward this message to everyone you know to make sure they vote, too. And remind your friends in battleground states on Facebook to go vote:

Moments ago, the President recorded a short video with a simple but important message that you should watch right away.

Watch this and share it far and wide.

[url] If there's any day you should bother your friends with politics, it's today.

Right now, it all boils down to this: Get your friends to the polls before they close.

There's too much at stake to sit on the sidelines and there's still time to make a difference -- keep going!

The polls are closed in your state, but ELECTION DAY ISN'T OVER.

and you still have time to put us over the top.

So pick up the phone and CALL, CALL, CALL!

- What is this?

Something that makes the case for voting for Barack Obama.

What can I do?

If you like it, we ask that you share it with any friends, family members, and neighbors you know who are still making up their mind about who to vote for and everyone knows some . All you have to do is pass it on forward it, share on Facebook, or on Twitter.

Done. What else?

If you spot something that's especially persuasive or inspiring, or if you want to share your own graphic, essay, or personal story, send it on to [email] and we'll pass the best ones along. Click here to check out all of our "Forward this" posts.

With one day to go in this election, and millions of voters still making up their minds, it's the job of everyone who supports President Obama to let everyone else know who they're voting for this year and why.

Moments ago, the President recorded a short video with a simple but important message that you should watch right away.

Watch this and share it far and wide.

[url] If there's any day you should bother your friends with politics, it's today.

Right now, it all boils down to this: Get your friends to the polls before they close.

There's too much at stake to sit on the sidelines and there's still time to make a difference -- keep going!

So pick up the phone and CALL, CALL, CALL!
