    Every time I talk to somebody and correct wrong information they had about voting, I really feel like I'm making a difference. One person I talked to this week thought it was too late to get an absentee ballot here in Florida (they have until 5pm Oct 31 to order ballot). Another person thought they couldn't vote because they lost their voter ID card (don't need it ... just a valid photo ID).

    And people are so excited to tell you that they are voting for President Obama. When somebody says something like "all six people in the house are voting for President Obama," it just makes you smile. There was a father whose son wasn't home (he better vote for Obama or he's getting kicked out of this house). A woman last night told me that her grandchildren and great grandchildren were voting for President Obama. She was especially proud of one great-granddaughter who would be voting for the first time in this election.

    Just an overall wonderful feeling that for all the voter suppression efforts from the GOP, that we can beat them by making she we contact as many voters as possible and give the the correct information.
