a loss for words

| No Comments

So I decided not to talk about working at the polls. People get fired for blogging about their jobs all the time, plus voter privacy is at stake. All I can say is it's rewarding work. I recommend it if you like democracy.

And I feel like writing about the staging area is getting monotonous. I was there again today, just like every day, the office is still nice, phone bankers came in again, a canvasser dropped off a packet, etc etc. All I can say is, if you've ever thought about volunteering, now is the time! This weekend and then Nov 1-4 will be the most important days of the campaign. We will be running canvasses and phone banks all day. We'll need help in the afternoons and evenings with data. And we especially need people who have free time on weekdays to help us cover the office, allowing daytime volunteers to come in. Call 919.827.4685 or come by any evening after 5 or anytime on weekends. 3215 Guess Road, Suite 106. Right across the street from Pizza Palace. If you see a sign on the door that says "Obama Volunteer Office -- Come In!" then we're there and we want your help. If you don't live near North Durham then call your local campaign office and ask them to direct you to the staging area nearest you.

Also, read this article by Sean of FiveThirtyEight.com about a particularly impressive staging area in Northern Virginia. It's so big the person running it is called a "Hub Director." What I'm doing isn't in the same league as those folks, not even close. I'm just proud to be working for the same thing as they are.

Turns out I had a lot to say for someone who's at a loss for words.
