Ellison Daily, Part 1 - ONE WEEK LEFT TO MAKE HISTORY HAPPEN!

ONE WEEK LEFT TO MAKE HISTORY HAPPEN!

This election is about us! Volunteer on Election Day, on campus, on the phones and on the doorstep!

THIS IS IT! There is just ONE WEEK LEFT to go until Tuesday, September 12 – the election that will MAKE HISTORY in Minnesota when we send Keith Ellison to Congress!

We already know that Keith is the only candidate in the race who has never compromised on his progressive politics , the only candidate in the race who has run a 100% positive campaign, and the only candidate in the race who has a proven record of standing up to powerful special interests and improving our communities’ lives.

This is why our campaign has won the broadest range of endorsements in the race (http://www.keithellison.org/endorsements.htm): not only the DFL Party and many elected officials, but newspapers ranging from American Jewish World to La Prensa and Insight News, unions representing all range of working people, almost all important environmental advocates, and key grassroots political organizations.

What this means is that this election isn’t really about Keith.

Instead, THIS ELECTION IS ABOUT US, about choosing the kind of future we want, about our creating the kind of community we want. It’s about choosing to make history.

That means it’s UP TO US toMAKE HISTORY HAPPEN! With just ONE WEEK LEFT, HERE'S HOW we can do that:

1) Tuesday, September 12 – TAKE ELECTION DAY OFF!
WE NEED YOU for Election Day! On Tuesday, September 12, please plan to take the whole day off, or as much of it as you possibly can. We will be doorknocking and phoning Keith's supporters to make sure their vote counts! We'll also need help coordinating food at our vote centers.

2) Tuesday, September 12 - BRING FOOD TO A GET-OUT-THE-VOTE CENTER!
We need lots of fuel for our fabulous volunteers, everything from bottled water and coffee (we'll be starting before dawn, so lots of coffee!) to sandwiches and hot meals. Anything you can offer will be most welcome! To help, call Clare at 612-229-4191 or email her at clare@keithellison.org .

3) Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10 – GET OUT THE VOTE!
In the last push before Election Day we'll be contacting voters in every neighborhood in the district. Bring your family and friends, and join loads of other folks like you who believe passionately in a truly fair, equal and just country. It’s going to be a lot of fun!

4) Every day – Contacting fellow progressive voters
Whenever you have a few hours free, no matter what time of day, we have voters you can contact to share your passion about Keith. We'll make it easy, so give us a call!

5) ON CAMPUS, Every day – STUDENTS FOR KEITH!
If you're back at U of M or Augsburg College, your energy, support and vote are crucial to Keith's broad coalition. Please contact Shaun at shaun@keithellison.org or 612-718-9070 to mobilize students to put Keith over the top!

To sign up for one or more volunteer activities (other than campus organizing or food on Election Day), call Trayshana at the Keith Ellison campaign at 612-722-5233, or email her at trayvolunteer@keithellisonorg.

We are THIS CLOSE to making history! LET'S DO IT!
