OFA-NH to Launch Campaign to Engage Voters with 'VOTE 2010 Kickoff' Events Across Granite State

New Hampshire residents to re-connect with first-time voters from 2008, urge them to help elect allies in Congress for President Obama this fall

Concord - Organizing for America-New Hampshire (OFA-NH) will officially launch its campaign to engage area voters around the fall elections with canvasses, phone banks and events across the Granite State on Saturday, June 5. Saturday’s events in New Hampshire are a few of the more than a thousand “VOTE 2010 Kickoff” events happening across the country on June 5th as volunteers begin voter outreach to build support for candidates who will be strong allies for President Obama in Congress.   The VOTE 2010 effort to reach out to first time 2008 voters are part of the Democratic Party’s record commitment of $50 million in staff and resources for the 2010 elections.

As the President laid out in his video to supporters a few weeks ago, OFA volunteers will be making a special effort to connect with the same people who went to the polls for the first-time ever in 2008. By returning to the polls this fall, these first time voters from 2008 will have a major impact on elections across the country. The June 5 kickoff events mark the start of the grassroots organizations’ 2010 push to reach voters for the November elections and is the first of many actions that OFA supporters will carry out this election season.
