A Quick, Easy and Painless Way to Get Out The Vote and Do Your Part

I’ve been working on a series of blog posts about social anthropology and online communities, but admittedly, I haven’t been giving my full attention to it because of this Super Week we’ve been having. First the Giants, now Super Tuesday. I’m hoping to wrap up at least the first entry of the series and post it tomorrow.

In the meantime, whenever I’ve had a few moments, I’ve been doing this pretty cool activity on Barack Obama‘s website. It’s really simple, and it lets me know that I’m doing my part.

Ever want to do your part, but not want to commit to going to a campaign headquarters? Or are you too busy, but only have time for just a few phone calls?

The Obama campaign has been rolling out this nifty little feature on their site that lets you pick a Super Tuesday state and make some “get out the vote” calls from your own home or office. Once you choose the state, a sample script appears with a list of people to call. You give them a ring, encourage them to get out and vote, and tada, you’ve done your job.

If you’ve only got a moment to spare, but want to do your part, give it a whirl. Then you can tell everyone you were a part of this little something that we like to call “we.”
