How do I get involved with the Kerry campaign?
I'm 18 and I want to work for Kerry this summer (I live near Philly, will be in D.C. next year). Any ideas on how to get involved?

There doesn't seem to be a local office in your area, unless you can get to the NYC office. I'd write them a snail mail, or get involved locally with democratic committees.

On edit... someone always seem to beat me to it.... LOL :)

3. there are KERRY meet-ups all across America....get to one and
you'll learn a lot and have many areas to help in...

also, if you call the Kerry campaign offices or headquarters and let them know you want to volunteer....someone will return your phone call talk to you about what areas that you feel able and willing to help in...

there is a lot to be done...and I appreciate your PATRIOTIC offer to help Kerry win and TAKE BACK AMERICA....

4. p.s.
The near-philadelphia vote is going to be a lot of the swing for Pennsylvania, which may well be a lot of the swing for the whole election. So go for it.

5. this email i got today

Sign up for our field program today and help us reach our goal to reach 1,000,000 volunteers and supporters in May.

Visit our recruiting center for help signing up new Kerry supporters and volunteers in your community.

On your block there's a woman named Sue. Like you, she supports John Kerry. Like you, she's appalled at the future George Bush is creating for her children. But unlike you, she's not going to vote on November 2nd.

Why won't she vote? Maybe because she doesn't know where her polling place is. Or maybe it will just slip her mind between getting kids to school and rushing to work. There are millions of people like Sue and they are the folks who will decide this election.

You are the only one who can tell Sue where her polling place is and do whatever ever it takes to get her to the polls on Election Day. If you don't, who will? The only way we will take back the White House this election is by having Kerry volunteers in every precinct looking for the Sues on their blocks and getting them out to vote.

Whether you can help for only one hour on Election Day -- or full time for the entire campaign -- we need you on our team. We're building a field program that gives you what you need to be most effective: plans and direction, materials, training, and connections with other volunteers and campaign staff. This is going to be the most exciting field campaign in a generation. But it won't happen without you.

Are you in?

Will you ask your friends to join us? Forward this email so that they can sign up, too.

Or take this effort offline by visiting our recruiting center to print signup sheets to bring on board friends, family, and neighbors who might not use the email as frequently as you do. Just click here:

Kerry volunteers will be responsible for getting out the vote in every precinct across the country. In addition to saving America by winning this election, Kerry volunteers are going to have a ton of fun. Our field program is a chance for all of us to meet others in our communities who share our values and the passion to make a difference.

We're already more than 600,000 strong, and we've set a goal to reach one million this month. The Bush campaign has had four years to build, but we're quickly catching up. Forward this email and ask your friends to sign up. Or print the signup form right here:

Thank you,

John Norris and Karen Hicks
National Director and Deputy National Director of Field
John Kerry for President
