Ann Arbor Area Community News
With polls showing Michigan somewhere between “total tossup” and “solid Kerry”, and Ohio recognized to be crucial to the turnout of the election, voter turnout and poll monitoring movements are still recruiting.
Ann Arbor/Detroit Poll Monitors
Ryan Bates, organizer for MOSES’ Election Protection efforts in Ann Arbor and Detroit, sends the following e-mail for people interested in serving as poll monitors and troubleshooting any difficulties that voters may experience:
For those of who have friends haven’t got to training, or you haven’t got to training yourself, by popular demand, we have scheduled a fourth election protection training
Voter Mobilization by Telephone
MoveOn PAC is organizing get-out-the-vote phone parties—none are currently scheduled in Ann Arbor, but there’s an easy sign-up form for hosting a party:
Cell phones in hand, we’ll gather in living rooms across the country to have fun and contact voters together. Each phone party will have a list of folks to call and scripts to read while we’re on the phone.
MSA’s Voice Your Vote is still taking volunteers for their Phonestorm voter mobilization:
To make sure the students we registered get to the polls, Voice Your Vote is manning the phones from 7:00 – 11:00 every night until the election. Sign up now to help us make calls in the Michigan Student Assembly Offices on the 3rd floor of the Michigan Union.
That’s all in my inbox right now; please add others in comments.
