In politics, it’s a nice feeling the weekend before an election when something like this starts happening organically.

Kim Carter, who some of you may know from her various activities and service as an Obama delegate, has taken it upon herself to organize a “Sister-to-Sister” phone bank for Yasmin Neal in an effort to encourage at least three hundred women to go to the polls and vote for Yasmin on Tuesday. This is a virtual phone bank, and in less than 24 hours, Kim has engaged volunteers all over the state of Georgia. The ask is simple – call strong democratic women in the district and ask them to go to the polls on Tuesday to vote for Yasmin. We have the lists, the scripts and all the instructions, so if you can spare a few minutes to make 25-50 calls to Democratic women, please email me at amymorton(at) aol (dot) com. You can make the calls today and tomorrow.

We all know what’s a stake in this race. Fewer than 125 people voted in early voting. It’s all about turnout, and we need your help to elect a great, progressive woman! This is truly a situation where one call, one vote, may make all the difference.

    I think what we learn from MJ is that the message is getting out, and that’s a good thing.

  2. JMPrince says:

    This is pretty curious too. Just because someone calls you @ ~9.30PM you’re all peevish? Nothing else matters in the grand scheme of things? My how silly & childish. JMP

    In addition. I do NOT vote based on political affiliation, gender or color. I try to vote for the best qualified. Also, I do not believe that the candidate who raises the most money is the most qualified. I am really put off my campaign techniques.

    That’s exactly what we have in this race – a republican (barely) claiming to be a conservative democrat. And, that’s the nicest thing I can say about Yasmin’s opponent. If you live in HD 75 or know someone who does, get (them) out and vote!

    That final push can make a huge difference. Pedro Marin won his primary by 31 votes in July. Without the major push those last couple of days, we could have ended up with a guy who was really a republican claiming to be a conservative democrat.

    I hope that you can join us. We have commitments to call from Georgia, South Carolina, and one Monday ONLY caller in West Virginia.

    If you decide to join us, please know that this is not “Wham Bam Thank You Maam” Phonebanking. I prefer that you actually become a support or sister to your contact list. If someone is not at home or if you leave a message, it is expected that you try again later or the next day. Also, we ask that you contact your sisters on Tuesday election day to confirm if they voted or to see if they are experiencing any obstacles or difficulties. As Amy stated above, only 125 people have cast a vote in Clayton County. We need at least 300 women who are willing to take a stand for Character & Integrity in this race by casting their vote for Yasmin Neal.

    When women vote, women win. When women vote, Democrats win.

      Last night yasmin’s campaign auto call had Kem Kembrough calling at 9:30 p.m. I complained to the sheriff’s office this morning. Tonight, recorded message from Yasmin at 9:03. This is too late to be calling for votes. I am outraged and will NOT vote for her. Some people don’t stay up late. Two nights in a row is too much.
