Dear friend,

Election Day is a few weeks away. That's not a lot of time.

While Senator Obama is poised to win Illinois’ electoral votes, we live next to a state that is a crucial battleground – Iowa.
George W. Bush won Iowa by less than 1% in 2004 – despite John Kerry leads in polls right before Election Day. Iowa was one of only two states that switched from voting Democratic in 2000 to Republican in 2004.
We cannot allow this to happen again, and we need your help. A switch of only 3 votes per precinct would have stopped Bush from winning Iowa in 2004.
Thousands of undecided Iowa voters now have early ballots in their hands, and we need your help to make sure that when they cast their votes, they cast them for Barack.

That's why we're recruiting Illinois volunteers to come to Iowa, where they will knock on doors and then “get out the vote” every Saturday and Sunday, and on Election Day. Canvassing works – studies have shown that door-to-door canvassing increases turnout by over 11%. Every volunteer makes a big difference.

We’re asking you to sign up here to go to Iowa. The Iowa staff will be in touch with you about your specific assignment. Please make sure your friends and family know about this website as well:
Please sign up right away for the days you can come to Iowa. No experience is required. The Iowa team will provide you with everything you need.

Thank you, on behalf of the campaign, for your help and support. Every canvasser in Iowa makes a huge difference. Winning Iowa is crucial for this campaign and Barack needs our help.

Thank you

Given my limited political experiences, I'd say that there are probably enough Iowans to take care of Iowa & that anyone stupid enough to respond to this will be inundated, deluged or whatever with pleas for MONEY.
