Flash forward to November 6th. You're watching the election results roll in from a key county in a battleground state -- and President Obama wins by a handful of votes. Now imagine that you knew your work played a huge role in putting the President over the top. That's the incredible moment you'd be working toward as part of Vote Corps, a special group of volunteers who will work in battleground states to get out the vote through Election Day. Will you join Vote Corps?

[url] If you join, you'll relocate to a crucial part of a state that could decide this election. You'll get there any time from one week to six weeks before Election Day, and stay all the way until the last vote is cast. You'll work with a team of staffers, local volunteers, and other Vote Corps members who have come from far and wide to pitch in. Together, you'll make sure as many voters from the area as possible turn out to vote. You'll make phone calls, knock on doors, and have one-on-one conversations -- all the organizing activities that we've been using from the start to get people engaged in this election. You'll put in some long days as a volunteer. But the experience itself is something you'll carry with you for years. You'll know that you did your share to help President Obama win this thing, and helped a lot of people make their voices heard. It's a big job, and it's not for just anyone. But I hope it's one for you. If you can help get that work done in a battleground state, then say you're interested in joining Vote Corps: [url] This is the home stretch. Let's finish it.
