Just Say Now Phone Banking: People Love Being Called for Prop 19

We’re experiencing something I’ve never seen before with the Just Say Now Prop 19 phone banking: the people we’re calling LOVE being called.

Sure, we’re targeting people in the 18-29 age group who are likely to support marijuana legalization. And with 94% awareness of Prop 19 in that group, we knew there was going to be enthusiasm.

But when Michael Whitney was at the Prop 19 headquarters last weekend phonebanking with our friends from Students for Sensible Drug Policy, people started CHEERING when the callers said they were from Prop 19. If nobody was home and they left a message, people were calling back and thanking them.

Seriously.

Just Say Now placed over 5,000 calls last week into California, Arizona, Oregon and South Dakota. Our phone banking tool is teh awesome, thanks to the hard work of Mike Whitney and Brian Sonenstein (who made the great video above).

You can login now through Facebook, Twitter or register through email, and start calling!

And once you’re logged in, you can join the FDL calling group. Or create your own group. If you’re looking for a bright spot in the 2010 election, this is it!
