Winning the majority in the House and Senate, not to mention changing the GOP dominance here in Florida, is dependent on grassroots efforts in getting out the vote. The GOP has lost the issues and any moral authority to lead with their corruption and incompetence—but they have the advantage: more money, a cohesive strategy, more investment in the media and in the companies that count the votes. But most of all, starting in the 90s they focused their money and efforts where we had previously dominated--grassroots.
Their “microtageting” efforts have been brutally effective in past elections and with the 2006 primaries, which is why if you have never helped before, we need you now.
Sign up to canvass with us on October 7 here. It’s a lousy two hours we spend meeting and talking with Democratic voters who don’t normally vote in midterm elections. We meet at 10 am at the at the old Pic-n-Save Plaza in Longwood at the intersection of SR 434 and Rangeline Rd. (If you live outside of Seminole and want to help in your specific area, Democrats.org has a post called "Find Events" that will tell you where to go.)
We also have opportunities to be poll watchers, poll greeters, and if you don’t want to leave your house, virtual callers who contact voters whenever its convenient for you.
Come to the meeting on Thursday, September 28 at 7 pm at the Eastmonte Civic Center, Altamonte Springs to learn more and to sign up. Or call 407.330.9988 www.seminoledemocrats.org
It’s going to take all of us putting in a little work to pull this off in November, and this is the best opportunity we have had in over a decade. I don’t know when we will get a better chance, so let’s make sure we don’t blow it
