3. There is a huge amount you can do.

Go to dashboard.barackobama.com and find your neighborhood team. Then click "Events" to find out what activities are going on near you.

I live in NJ and have been making phone calls into PA as well as driving over to PA to knock on doors. It's extremely satisfying to be a part of this campaign. Sometimes people are rude, but other times I feel I may have put a seed of doubt in someone's mind, or gotten someone to think more deeply about the issues. And it's great to meet so many other people who care enough to volunteer their time for a cause they believe in.

There is a statistic out there: an undecided person who is contacted in person, by someone volunteering for a candidate, is significantly -- something like 10 times -- more likely to vote for that candidate. The Romney campaign is making robocalls, whereas the Obama campaign has volunteers making calls. That is a huge advantage we have over them.

If you don't want to make phone calls, you can do data entry; there is a need for that as well.

Everyone who is supporting Obama and has any time to spare should go out and volunteer. Honestly: instead of posting here, people should be making phone calls. You can make calls from anywhere in the country, either by joining phone banking activities in your neighborhood or making calls from your home using the Dashboard "make calls" tool. Please go out and do something. The calls you make may decide the outcome of the election.
