Volunteer!  Hours available every day from 10 AM – 8 PM.

With only 7 days left until the polls close on August 13th, Rush needs your help to reach out to other voters and remind them to vote. Turnout is crucial in this short special election, and the best way to get voters to the polls is for supporters to reach out to their peers in the community.

Volunteer support has been strong throughout the campaign, but we need an extra boost at the end.

Can Rush count on you to help reach out to voters in this final week before election day?

Sign up to volunteer here, or call our voter outreach headquarters at (609) 799-0800.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
