I registered to vote in Virginia one month ago.
First phone call from the Obama campaign was last Thursday. Second call just now.
Both from live human beings, not robots.
“Do you plan to vote? Do you plan to vote for Obama? Do you know where to vote? Do you need a ride?”
I’m impressed. But I’m also a bit disappointed that no word was said about the very competitive Senate and House races. Sometimes I worry that Obama might be taking all that post-partisan bushw seriously.
Update Another live call at 5 pm, this time from Charlottesville. I didn’t hear the phone, so they left a message, mentioning all three candidates and giving me the polling station address.
