This just in, from the Multnomah County Democrats.
Now, more than ever, we need you. Voter turnout in Multnomah County began strong, but on Friday it took a downturn. For the first time in days, the number of ballots returned dropped below the level from 2002. As of today we're running 6% -- 10,000 votes -- behind 2002. Oregon needs you now.
What can you do about it? Besides reminding everyone you know (send an email!)...
Come into our office, 232 NE 9th, to contact voters by phone. Come in as soon as possible -- we need you. Phone banks run until 9 pm. tonight and from 9 a.m. to almost 8 p.m. tomorrow.
Come in to canvass and speak with voters at the door. Canvasses run until 7 p.m. tonight and begin at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
Remind people during the morning commute that it's Election Day and that their vote is very important. Join Governor Ted Kulongoski and U.S. Senator Ron Wyden at Pioneer Courthouse Square for an Election Day visibility event. Meet at 8 a.m. at Pioneer Courthouse Square for the visibility event with Ted and Ron.
Call 503-239-8646. E-mail email@example.com. Sign up online. Stop in at 232 NE 9th (between Davis & Everett).
Remember: Multnomah is the bright, blue beating heart of Oregon. If turnout dips in Multnomah County, we can lose statewide.
What are you waiting for?
