Utah for Obama Announces Vote for Change

Utah for Obama announces Vote for Change, part of an unprecedented 50-state voter registration and mobilization drive, in which we will bring thousands of new people into the political process.

On May 10th, there will be voter registration events in all 50 states.

Misty Fowler, Chair of Utah for Obama writes on her blog:

The really great thing about this is that on one of the planning conference calls for this event, I got to hear the Deputy Campaign Manager talk about why the Obama campaign is doing this. They still have the last few straggler states to get votes in, so why worry about the General Election this early? Well, it’s because Obama isn’t trying to win the office of President. He’s got much grander plans than that, and it involves you and me, and every level of the Democratic Party across the country. He’s very serious about making sure that Democrats win every seat and office available to them in the nation, because that will help us to accomplish our goals. Registering voters is just a first step in that.

Thank you to Wayne Holland for allowing us to stage this voter registration drive at Utah's Democratic State Convention. (Since they happen to occur on the same day!)

This campaign has never been about one person, but about all of us working together for a new kind of politics, a stronger democracy, and a better future for our country. It is premised on the idea that we are all better off when we take a stake in each other's lives.

Recent voter registration drives have registered more than 200,000 new Democrats in Pennsylvania, more than 115,000 new Democrats in North Carolina, and more than 150,000 new Democrats in Indiana. Those numbers just scratch the surface of what's possible.

Sign up to volunteer for the Vote for Change drive in Utah.
