Volunteering for the First Time

So, I'd made a few phone calls in the past, but I'd never hit the streets. Yesterday I spent 3 hours doing voter registration for the Obama campaign. At first it was a little slow, but in the end I think we registered about 30 new voters. The interesting thing was that everyone seemed to have an opinion on the issues and was decently well-informed. I will be continuing to volunteer until the day of the election. Voter registration continues until October 4th, then it goes into Get Out The Vote Efforts. I'll blog as I go.

Also, I'll be having a psuedo-debate with my mom on the issues later on in September - it's something we're doing in order to convince the rest of my family (I'm a Democrat, she's a Republican). I'll videotape the debate and post it here as well. :)

Have a great Sunday!
