I'm about to start an hour of "Call for Change"
...with MoveOn.org.

I don't like it, but if I can make the sacrifice, so can you. The point is to get-out-the-vote for Democrats.

3. I just finished one
I mostly got hang-ups, but did speak to a couple of nice Democratic women in Minnesota who were supporting the Dem Tim Walz. I feel I did something at least.

5. We Minnesota Democratic women are nice
and thanks for calling. That's a great race to be working on. I was out door knocking in another district. I have to say though, I don't even answer the phone any more because there are so many phone calls.

6. I'm envious.
I just made calls for Patty Wetterling, but I would rather have called for Tim Walz.

4. Good luck
hope they go well. I thought Saturday nights were usually not too fruitful, it wasn't canvassing anyway. I'm going to do some calls tomorrow afternoon. Five-6pm during the week has been my best time to get answers and not just answering machines. Responses here have been good. Had some people just say 'which one is the democrat, that's the one I'll vote for'.

7. I've found 6:30PM-7:30 PM on a weeknight...
...as a good time in terms of people actually picking up the phone.

8. I did it.
I only spoke with three people who said they're planning to vote for Patty Wetterling (D) and so it wasn't a very satisfying experience, but someone needs to try to get-out-the-vote and tonight I was one of those someone's.
