Turnout counts more than ever - what will progressives do?


In the wake of the Kerry flap, the GOP is seeking to rally its base. Will Democrats and progressives be able to overcome the GOP get-out-the-vote advantage? Here’s an overview in Huffington Post of the stakes and the resources available to both Democrats and Republicans. On top of the work being done locally by DC for Democracy to aid Judy Feder and Jim Webb, Democrats have a unique at-home tool in’s Call to Change program that allows you to call Democratic-leaning voters from home. Also, if you’ve got at least five minutes or five dollars, progressives are turning to the “Do More Than Vote” website that puts together a variety of electioneering options.
