Clean Water Action Makes Final Voter Push
Unprecedented Effort in Michigan, Other Battleground States
Lansing, MI - Clean
Water Action announced today that its grassroots field effort in
John Kerry and other candidates has reached more than 2 million
states where its members may be key to the outcome of the race. In
Michigan, more than 62,000 households were reached, many with multiple
contacts, and will continue to be contacted through Tuesday.
“The person to person campaign strategies we have built for decades are invaluable in this extremely tight Presidential race,” said Clean Water Action President David Zwick. “Having an established membership base in critical swing states gives Clean Water Action an ability to mobilize voters in their neighborhoods, block by block, door by door. With a presidential race this close, our members could make a real difference. We’re going to get them to the polls.” <>
Nationwide, Clean Water Action has contacted more than 2 million households and has had multiple contacts with its members in key states through person-to-person visits, telephone, volunteer mobilization, mail and other communication methods. The organization’s get-out-the vote plan will mobilize hundreds of thousands of voters to go to the polls and vote for pro-environment candidates. <>
Clean Water Action is a national community-based organization with more than 800,000 members. More than 169,000 members reside in Michigan. Clean Water Action is working for clean, safe and affordable water, prevention of health-threatening pollution, creation of environmentally safe jobs and businesses, and empowerment of people to make democracy work.
