In the Final Week, What More Can The Deaf People Do?

We are now down to few days before the Election. Is the election decided? Should we all just sit back and wait for the results? NO!

Here’s what you can do to ensure your vote is being counted:

Haven’t registered to vote yet?
In these states, you can register to vote on the same day as you vote. However, you must show up in person at the voting booths.



Minnesota (as long as you provide proof of residency)

New Hampshire



You have deaf friends, family members, or live in one of these states?
You can call them up on VP or send an email. Registering to vote is the surest way to make sure that your opinion is being voiced on the issues that affect us as Americans and that it counts!!

Are you a deaf McCain or Obama supporter? Want to do something, that little extra inch to help with their campaigns?

I’ll give you a bit of information from Christian Ferry, Deputy McCain-Palin Campaign Manager:

This morning, supporters in every state gathered together for McCain Nation's Super Saturday to elect John McCain and Sarah Palin. Senator McCain took some time from the campaign trail to join us on a conference call to give us a quick update on the state of the race.

We're beginning to see the polls tighten as more Americans get the truth about Barack Obama's plan to "spread the wealth around" through tax increases on hard working Americans like Joe the Plumber.

Our campaign even sponsored the "I'm Joe the Plumber" video contest this week for people just like you to share why they too are Joe the Plumber. Please take a minute today to watch a few videos.

There are big differences between Barack Obama and John McCain, and in the final days of the campaign more people are beginning to see that our plan to spread opportunity is the right direction for our country.

But we need help spreading this message, and that's where you come in.

If you weren't able to attend a McCain Nation event today, you still have an opportunity to volunteer your efforts from home to elect John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Please follow this link to take part in our weekly Virtual Super Saturday by making 20 calls for our campaign.

These calls make a big difference in our campaign. In the homestretch it's vital we reach every voter out there.

Making calls from home is easy to do; follow this link and select a state. We provide the names, numbers and call scripts right on your computer screen. All you need to do is make the call, read the script and record the results.

Thanks for all your time and dedication.

And here’s a little something from Jon Carson, who is the National Field Director for Obama for America:


Supporters are coming together on Wednesday, October 29th, to watch Barack's national TV appearance and call voters in battleground states. Talking one-on-one with potential fellow voters is one of the easiest and most effective ways for you to make an impact in this election.

Find a Last Call for Change house party near you or sign up to host one.

Every day through Election Day:

Drive into a neighboring SWING state to help with the campaign there.
(In this email, I received information about Virginia. You can register at if you would like to help volunteer for the campaign and find nearest locations to your home.)

Call from Home:

We need to make 300,000 calls to voters in battleground states this weekend. Right from your own home, on your own schedule, you can do your part in just an hour or two by calling voters in – Swing States!
(Again, in this email, I got information regarding Pennsylvania. You can sign up online at if you want to be part of this grassroots effort.)

Parents, friends, young, and old – the best way for you to truly make a difference aside from voting and campaigning is understand fully the significance of this election. Do discuss the election news among yourselves, pump up the excitement, and remind each other that either way it will be a historical election. And how lucky you are to have the opportunity to be part of it, to vote in it, and to witness it all!

Someday, long into your future you will look back on this election season and be happy that you were here for it.
