MoveOn.org Political Action’s youth voter registration effort was a nine week registration drive. Grassroots Campaigns’ staff ran 57 offices in 44 cities across 13 battleground states, and registered 230,000 new voters.
In the two years leading up to the 2008 election, GCI staff worked to organize MoveOn’s most active members into nearly 200 Councils nationwide. These Councils tool a lead role in MoveOn’s massive election recruitment effort to boost the Obama Campaign. Councils organized canvasses, held call parties to recruit volunteers in battleground states and volunteered directly with the Obama Campaign. Councils working with GCI staff took an especially leading roll in enabling the call party program, which culminated in over 7,480 house parties where volunteers made 2.14 million calls, recruiting over 90,000 volunteers for Obama in swing states.
