Canvassing for Obama

Well today was exhausting but it was a lot of fun. Went out all day canvassing for the Barack Obama campaign. It's amazing to go meet people and hear there stories. I personally knocked at around 100 doors across Shrewsbury over the course of the day. I'm not sure what the total was, but it definitely shows one person active can make a difference.

I'm looking forward to the Wednesday meeting to share the experience with the rest of the team that couldn't make it and those that I didn't see throughout the day.

You can get involved by finding a local group here: http://my.barackobama.com or send me an e-mail and I'd be happy to find out details about your local group meetings.

Hopefully Sara doesn't lynch me for shamelessly promoting my candidate on the blog. Welcome to college - all kinds of opinions held by all kinds of nuts like me.

Agree? Disagree? Let me know

Hi Stephen,
It's great to see students so politically active. My Mom, who is almost 80 years old, is also canvassing for Obama, and she is so energized by it all.

Active, informed citizens who are also critical thinkers form the backbone of a successful democracy.

Way to go Stephen!!
