Obama Urges Supporters to Skip School or Work on Election Day

leave a comment »

Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign has released an online commercial that urges students to skip classes and others to take a day off from work on Election Day.

We can’t win this election unless every Obama supporter gets out and votes on November 4th. To do that, we need a massive team of volunteers helping us.

Can you take next Tuesday off from work, join the final push, and make sure that everyone who supports Barack turns out to vote?

This ad was just released. There are not many employers who allow workers to take a day on such short notice unless it’s a medical emergency. So the the effectiveness of the ad is questionable. But the effort is to get volunteers to help get out the vote, even if it means for them to travel to a battleground state.
