When we wake up a week from today, this election will be over.

The race in Nevada is extremely close -- and those six electoral votes could mean the difference between victory and defeat. That's why it's up to Californians like us to pitch in with our counterparts in Nevada and get folks there who support President Obama to the polls.

Watch this video, and then sign up for your VERY LAST CHANCE to join our get-out-the-vote effort in Nevada from November 5th through November 6th:

Here's the good news: We could very well get to victory in the Silver State if we make this a full sprint to November 6th. We're getting out more early votes and mobilizing more folks than our opponents -- but we can't afford to slow down, not one bit.

At this point, we're either moving forward or we're falling behind -- there is no middle ground.

It has to be today. This is the very last chance to sign up -- and if you do, someone from our travel team will contact you to confirm your plans:
