Chair's Letter - November 2014

With Election Day nearly upon us, we are planning the final push for our Get Out The Vote (GOTV) weekend, November 1-4 at our HQT at 1328 El Camino Real in Belmont. We want you to be part of it.

Thanks to all of you who have been phoning voters and walking precincts over the past six weeks, we have identified voters who support our candidates and ballot measures and now we have to make sure they mail their absentee ballots in on time or know where there polling place is located if they will vote in person on election day.

We need your help to reach these voters. We will be calling all weekend and through Election Day, up until the polls close. We will open early on election day to reach county voters as they are heading off to work and call supporters of Democratic candidates in tight US Senate races throughout the country. 

All you need is your cell phone, charger and an unwavering commitment to Keep California and the Senate Blue! We will train you and provide food and beverages each day. We have a limited number of loaner phones so if you don't have a cell phone you are still welcome to join us. 

If you prefer to hand out literature we can set you up with endorsement cards containing the Democratic Party's recommendations for all local and state candidates and ballot measures.  You can pass them out at BART and Caltrain stations or give them to friends, family and neighbors. These are available now and you're welcome to come get them right away.
Here's our GOTV schedule:
Saturday,  November 1     10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Sunday,    November 2     11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Monday,    November 3     10:00 am - 8:30 pm
Tuesday,   November 4      8:00 am -8:00 pm
Our Election Night Party starts at 8:00 pm. We will be showing televised election results from all major networks on our big viewing wall and getting local results online.
The importance of this election cannot be overstated. We all need to do our part to elect Democrats and keep our state and our country moving forward.
