Barack Obama

Turn North Carolina Blue for Barack Obama!

Bring your checkbook and your desire for change to our "Turn North Carolina Blue for Barack Obama" party!

For the first time in decades, North Carolina can be the state that puts a Democrat in the White House. Senator Obama's message of change has resonated with Tar Heel voters, but his campaign needs all the help it can get as it fights against a Republican smear campaign of truly epic proportions. A representative from the Obama-Biden campaign will be on hand to share with us Senator Obama's vision for America and to tell us how we can get involved with the campaign.

Suggested contribution amounts: $25, $50, $75, $100, $200 -- and/or a firm commitment to volunteer with the Obama-Biden campaign between now and Election Day!

BABYSITTING WILL BE PROVIDED! So bring the kids and learn how you can help turn North Carolina blue for Barack Obama on November 4th!

Please RSVP directly to me no later than Monday, October 13th, so we can get some sense of numbers. Also, PLEASE NOTE: If you're bringing your children, please let us know in your RSVP the number and ages of the children. Thanks!

Obama canvass in Orange County

Via e-mail:

Hi Everyone!

Last weekend “100,000 Knocks for Barack” was a complete success!  We knocked on over 6000 doors in Orange County alone and over 107,000 statewide!

We definitely could not have done it without all the amazing volunteers who were out knocking on doors all day on Saturday and Sunday.  That said, our work is not done.  We have a little over 30 days to win this state for Barack and every door we knock gets us closer to this goal.

Here are the staging locations for this weekend’s canvass.  As always, we will also be staging canvasses out of the office but we encourage volunteers to go to satellite canvasses so that you can knock on doors in your own neighborhoods.  

Saturday at 10:00am and 2:00pm

Cup A Joe Coffee
120 W. King St. Hillsborough, NC

Carrboro Town Commons 
310 W. Main St.  Carrboro, NC

Glen Lennox Business Center
15 Hamilton Rd. Chapel Hill

Sunday at 1:00pm and 4:00pm

Efland Supermarket
Hwy 70, Efland, NC

Cup A Joe Coffee at Timberlyne Shopping Center
1129 Weaver Dairy Rd.  Chapel Hill, NC

University Mall
Main Entrance of Dillard's

Southern Village at Weaver St. Market
716 Market St.

In addition, we also need help with phonebanking, canvassing, and voter registration on a daily basis.  (Sunday-Thursday 5-9, Friday 5-7)

There are 33 days left and we have a real chance of winning this state.  Things are really going to pick up and we will need all hands on deck to make it happen.  That said, we know a lot of folks have been waiting for a good time to get involved.  This is the time.  Please come and join us in the final sprint of this amazing movement.  We can’t do this without you.

Thinking ahead, if it is at all possible, it would be extremely helpful if you could make yourself available on the 3rd and 4th of November by taking the day off work.

Thank you so much and please feel free to contact us or come by the office with any questions or concerns.

Yes we can!
