drive for equlity draft

Dear friend,

Can you drive or rideshare to Maine to help defeat Question 1? We need you for the Get-Out-the-Vote volunteer shifts from Friday the 30th through Election Day. And now we're making it much, much easier for you.

For the final long campaign weekend we're going to give you a FREE place to stay in a local hotel if you can work at least two volunteer shifts.

Marriage equality could win for the first time after losing 30 consecutive elections. We've never been this close to victory. Will you take a short trip to make history?

It doesn't matter if you have a car or not – when you sign up at our Drive for Equality website, just check a box on the form for a rideshare request to post on our interactive board.

We call Election Day and the four days preceeding it the Get-Out-The-Vote period: 'GOTV'.

It is absolutely the most critical period of this election because we need to verify that tens of thousands of our supporters have actually voted. It is the GOTV 'ground operation' that wins close elections. We need you to truly be a part of it by coming to Maine. We want to literally be in personal contact with tens of thousands of voters during GOTV. We need you to join us in the field. Will you join us here and make a big difference? No experience is required, and we'll help you make the trip by providing you and your comapnions hotel rooms and by helping to match drivers with riders. If you are traveling as a group, or in a carpool, we will try to match you in a shared room with your group. Note: ALL participants must sign up at the Drive for Equality website. You can help us defeat Question 1 in Maine. In just 8 days, voters in Maine will choose the direction of the national marriage equality movement. The polls are close, but we can win if we have enough volunteers to turn out all our voters. From Burlington to Long Island, you can make the biggest difference by driving (or riding in a carpool) to Maine for all or any part of GOTV from Friday the 30th through Election Day on the 3rd. Sign up to Drive for Equality to Maine. Your short trip will make a big difference. P.S. Can't make it to Maine or want to help even more? Join Call for Equality, our virtual phone bank program, and help contact voters from your home or office. All you need is a phone and an internet connection to make a difference. Sign up here:
