No more Texas governors for president

Do you own a cell phone?   Don’t live in or near a swing state?  Well, you can still be a swinger (no, not that kind).  Choose from one of the below Democratic campaigns, spare a few hours over the next couple of days, and call thousands of your friends.  You’ve always wanted to do that, right?  Perfect!

Remember, you can call until (almost) polls close on the West Coast on Election Day.  From my experiences in various Presidential and other political campaigns, last-minute phone calls matter.  Some voters just need a little push and encouragement.

Feel free to share the below information with family members, friends and acquaintances.  Right click on the date down below (next to my ID) on this comment, then ‘Open Link in New Tab,’ and copy comment link from up top to embed in your emails.

Let’s go win this election on November 6th!  Thank you.

Online/Remote/Virtual Phone Banking Links for Election 2012



Phone Banking Guidelines - Please read this.

Our list is targeted at available resources that allow, for example, Californians to phone bank for close races in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, and other battleground states even when online phone banking is not provided by the campaigns. The new tool is remote/virtual phone banking.

Many campaigns don’t have online phone banking like you might have experienced in the past for the Obama-Biden Campaign, which is one click away to a script and list of voters. Please contact the following Democratic campaigns that use a variety of alternative resources including Facebook applications and dedicated software.  Volunteers can log on from inside or outside the state or Congressional District.  Some campaigns will email PDFs of names and numbers to interested political activists from all over the country. Read the directions carefully for each campaign.

Let’s work hard for the next few days and on to victory on November 6th!
