To help keep President Obama in office for four more years, we're working with AFL-CIO affiliate, Workers' Voice, to create the largest independent get-out-the-vote operation in the country.
Our approach uses something called real-time response targeting, enabling us not merely to identify voters who might be undecided, but to pinpoint the people who are actually being persuaded and mobilized by a conversation with our volunteers and then to adjust our targeting to find more voters we can persuade. One canvasser can now do the work of five.
On Saturday and Sunday, September 29th and 30th, MoveOn members across the country will gather at Election Season call parties to call other MoveOn members in key battleground states to sign them up to help get out the vote.

The GOP will do whatever it takes to defeat President Obama and secure the White House for Mitt Romney. Their pouring millions of Super PAC dollars into voter suppression efforts in key swing states to keep likely Democratic voters from ever voting. And tea party voter vigilante groups like True the Vote are trying to train hundreds of thousands of poll watchers to essentially intimidate progressive voters, especially people of color.
Research proves that the most effective way to turn out voters is through face-to-face conversations. That's why in the final month before Election Day it's crucial that we knock on as many doors as possible and talk directly to the voters who matter the most: those who support President Obama, but are unlikely to vote.
On Saturday and Sunday, October 13 and 14, thousands of MoveOn members will come together at Every Voter Counts call parties. We'll gather in living rooms and community centers across the country to call other MoveOn members in key battleground states and ask them to volunteer to help re-elect President Obama. Hosting a call party is fun and easy. They are a chance to meet other progressives in your community and work side by side to make sure that we win in November.
