E-M:/ VOLUNTEER - GET OUT THE VOTE!

Folks,

Tonight and tomorrow is the last push!  Please give a couple of hours to
help elect pro-environment candidates.  Many State House and Senate races
are razor close.  Attorney General candidate and environmental hero Gary
Peters is in a close race and leads only by a point or two!  Turn out will
make all the difference.

VOLUNTEER TO HELP GET OUT THE VOTE

Enviro-mich,

Everything depends on voter turnout this election.  Democrats and
Republicans, both on the State level and national levels, are pouring
considerable resources into Get Out the Vote efforts.  There are many
critically important races for environmentalists from the Attorney General
race to State Senate and House that are statistical deadheats.  Everything
depends on turnout.

Please volunteer in helping to Get Out the Vote this weekend, Monday and
Tuesday.  For those who are new to this, volunteers typically staff phone
banks making calls to known supporters, drop literature and walk precincts
to get people to the polls.

Please contact the Sierra Club, Clean Water Action or Michigan LCV to find
out ways you can help pro-environmental candidates get elected.  There is
alot going on and this is a great way to meet people with similar interests
and get fine free food.  I hear through the grapevine that Clean Water
Action is providing steak or tofu gourmet to their volunteers.  Usually lots
of freebies too!  Sierra and LCV have lovely green T-shirts (bribe bribe)
that will make others jealous.

Get out and volunteer!

Sierra Club - 517-484-2372
Clean Water Action - 517-203-0754
MI LCV - 734-222-9650

PLEASE DO MORE THAN VOTE - VOLUNTEER TO MAKE SURE OTHERS DO THE SAME!
