Political calling party, this weekend (!)

I’ve decided to spend some time this weekend making political calls. Would you like to join me?

I figured I would contact some friends and if they want to join me, take them to dinner as well. I’ll be calling between 2 and 6 and going out to dinner around 6:30 or 7:00, on both Saturday and Sunday.

In fact anyone can make calls from home, but if you decide to join me that will be great. I’ll even buy you dinner! (Limit 10) You are welcome to drop by and say HI even if you’re not making calls, and you’re welcome to join us for dinner too.

If you can’t make it this weekend, but you still want to help out, you can make calls on your own from home… visit moveon.org for info.

I’ve set this up as a “Private” event, meaning that moveon.org won’t invite people I don’t know, but feel free to forward this URL or bring others along… “friend of a friend” is OK too. I expect this to be a pretty low-key event.

More info can be found here: http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/event.html?event_id=26707
Or, send me email or try me on IM (check my profile). Thanks!

    Progress report!

    I was on my own today, which is not surprising given the late notice.

    I made around 100 calls and got about 15 positive results, and about 24 hangups/no thanks/already voted. The rest I just left a message saying “Please go out and vote if you can”.

    I think I’m not really good at this but I managed to do it anyway. I think I came across as too mechanical and not personable enough… I only got 3 or 4 people who wanted to be conversational. Not really surprising, since it’s probably dinner time in Ohio right now.

    Anyway I will be calling again tomorrow, so if anyone would like to join me Sunday between 2 and 6 just let me know, or come on over!
