Last Week to Help Virginia Democrats


The Virginia election is next Tuesday, so if you want to help the Democrats win, now’s the time to act. Here’s the last message from Tanya Tarr at VA Victory 2005, with opportunities from now through the weekend and on through election day:

Volunteer Opportunities!
We need your HELP NOW.
Vote on Tuesday, November 8th!
Polls open at 6am and close at 7pm.

There are 6 days until the election.
(Yes, that’s less than a week.)

NOVEMBER 1, 2005 Weekly Reason To Come Out and Volunteer:
Want the Democrats to win? Talk the talk and walk the walk. Come help us talk to voters and distribute literature. It’s as simple as that.

Weekly Volunteer Spotlight: YOU.
This is the finish line. We need your help to cross it and push Tim Kaine and the Democratic ticket to victory. Help us elect Tim Kaine, Leslie Byrne, and Creigh Deeds, and Delegates Bob Brink, Al Eisenberg, Adam Ebbin, and David Englin, and Ed Fendley for Arlington School Board. Let’s keep Arlington and the Commonwealth in Democratic hands.

If you can help — send me an email ( with your name, best phone number to reach you, and times and activities that you can help with. You can also call us at 703-528-8588 for more details. I know we will win this close election with your help.
