GOTV: Doylestown, PA

So tomorrow I'll be riding the bus down to the outskirts of Philadelphia to the small town of Doylestown, PA - for Barack Obama's 72-hour get out the vote efforts in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, one of the four most important swing counties in the country, according to politico.com.

This is such an exciting time to be alive.

More tomorrow night.

UPDATE: Monday 11:40pm
Just got back from Bucks County about 10 minutes ago. It was an inspirational day, if only to know that I've been able to be a very small part of this historic campaign. When we arrived this morning around 10am, the field office organizer said that over the 2-day weekend the campaign knocked on over 2 million doors. Wow. At the time, I assumed that was across the country... but later on I found out it was JUST Pennsylvania. Really wow.

Today, the 9 of us that travelled from Brooklyn put voting information (polling times, precinct location, number to call if you need a ride) on 550 doors. We each did three shifts, and left PA at 9pm. The field staff were still there, and planned to be back in the office by 6am.

This is happening all over the country.

Please vote tomorrow. 18 hours to victory.

Just make sure to stay off my property while you're here. We're not buying the bilge you're selling.
