Election Day Volunteers Needed

If you’re in the LA area, opposed to the Schwarzengroper, and have some time to spare tomorrow, there’s need for Get Out the Vote workers.

For door-to-door campaigning:

No on Recall

San Fernando Office

16000 Ventura Blvd., #405


Carolyn Smith, (818) 995-3367

For phone banking:

California Democratic Party

888 Figueroa St., #400

Los Angeles, CA

(213) 239-8730 phone

Things are looking grim, but not hopeless: Davis claims to have polls showing the recall a toss-up, and Schwazenegger’s people scoff but won’t say what their numbers are. Anyway, the effort has to be made.
