Report #3: Kerry in Las Vegas

Kerry in Las Vegas
Originally uploaded by johneaton.
John Kerry came to Las Vegas today to help us get out the vote. Beth was there with 11,000 other supporters. This post from KLAS TV mentions one strategy: "After Senator John Kerry got the crowd fired up at Jaycee Park in Las Vegas, campaign workers kept the momentum going. Direct from the rally, they drove six busloads of voters to early-polling places."

However, there was a much cooler strategy. While the rally was waiting for Kerry to arrive, cell phones were made available for folks to make calls to voters targeted by the get out the vote campaign. Beth and two fellow volunteers made 30 calls before Sheryl Crow performed.
