None of us can sit this election out.
Not when we’re just beginning to see the results of the change we’ve all been working for, and when there’s still so much left to do.
That’s why this election is so important, and that’s why we can’t let complacency overtake us in these last few weeks.
I have two things to ask of you.
First, Barack and I need you to commit to vote this fall.
And with so much at stake, we need to make sure your friends and family get out to vote as well. The best person in the world for that job is you.
That’s why OFA is launching its Commit to Vote Challenge. It’s a powerful way for you to commit to vote in this election — and then have fun while inspiring your friends to do the same.
Get started here.
We know from Barack’s campaign that when you get someone to make a commitment, they’re far more likely to follow through.
So OFA is making it as easy as possible for you to get everyone you know committed to going to the polls this year.
By taking part in this challenge — and getting commitments from 5, 10, 30, or more of the folks you’re close to — you’ll get us even closer to victory on November 2nd. And you’ll see who among your friends can inspire the greatest number of people to commit.
Every year, elections across the country are decided by the slimmest of margins. If we all get the people we know to commit to voting, we can change the outcomes of elections all over the country and continue to build the kind of future we want for ourselves and for our children.
There’s more information about the challenge at OFA’s Vote 2010 website. Let’s get started today:
Thanks so much,
