Getting out the vote

Today was the second time I went out canvassing for Obama. Two weeks ago I went out with another volunteer. Last weekend I didn’t feel too well, so I stayed in the office and made calls. Today I was out on my own. The office gives us a list of addresses of Democrats who are infrequent voters. The objective is to make sure they vote.

More than half of the people on my list today had moved or weren’t home. A lot of the houses looked like they were abandoned, most likely foreclosures. We just skip any houses with McCain signs, like this one.

Hostile territory
