It’s 3pm and as promised, here are the first day vote tallies to determine which members of Congress become FDL Fire Dogs, and receive community fundraising and GOTV support in 2010. The contest will continue until next Tuesday, and each day at 3pm we’ll be announcing the running tally.

We encourage people to campaign for the members they support by:

And remember, this is just round one. So even if your member of Congress doesn’t win this time, it’s well worth the effort to make the case that they deserve to win in the next round. We’re already seeing that those members who take time to interact with the community and fight for they progressive issues they care about are doing well. But often people just don’t know what a member of Congress is doing on an issue they care about a great deal, so taking time to educate and connect with the community is key.

Just to recap, here are the prizes:

  1. The first, second and third place winner will be added to an FDL ActBlue fundraising page.
  2. Voter lists from the winners’ districts will be purchased and entered into our Voter ID/GOTV tool.
  3. Members of the FDL community will call voters in these districts to identify and persuade constituent support, encourage voter registration and recruit volunteers.
  4. Those voters will be called again by the FDL community to help turn out voters during the fall election.
  5. When $10,000 has been raised for each candidate on ActBlue and 500 Voter ID calls logged, we will rerun the contest and add 3 more candidates to the list.
  6. Those who are already on the list will receive the same incentives for another cycle, subject to a confirmation vote by the community so they remain accountable.

Voting will close at midnight on Tuesday, February 9. Vote now.

And the first day FDL Fire Dog vote totals are. . .
