Posted on 10/21/2012 4:37:24 PM PDT by randita
I just received this email from the Romney Campaign:
Hi Friend - I am contacting you to see if you would be interested in participating in a unique volunteer opportunity this Election Day.
I will be heading up the national command center on November 6th and I am looking for talented volunteers to help out in key states across the country.
With less than three weeks to go, I am making a final push to bring on a few more supporters to help with this project.
Volunteers will be at the polling place from open to close on November 6th. These volunteers will be relaying critical information in real time, back to our national command center here in Boston.
If you're interested - just fill out the form at www.mittromney.com/orca by midnight tonight, October 21st.
Dan Centinello Deputy National Political Director Romney for President firstname.lastname@example.org
i also signed up....granted i am in NY and would have to travel but anything to get obama out of office...
I have a throwaway email account for political stuff. I get spam from the dhimmicrats all the time. I would love to get an invitation like this from one of them. It would be sweet to foil them at their own game by being in a position to watch them cheat from within enemy lines.
I signed up a few weeks ago and have gone through training.
Cutting edge technology use on election day.
Our forefathers put up with less tyranny than Obama is piling on us . Our forefathers went to war , walking miles in bare bloody feet on frozen ground, to risk death for freedom. We could make a few calls now?Go to Romneys site and volunteer to call people in Ohio and other swing states. Doesnt cost us anything to save America, freedom , and our way of life. The time is now.
Obama is killing coal , oil, etc. and private companies. Just if we allowed the private sector to develop the U.S.s unlimited coal, oil, natural gas, oil shale etc. just if the government and EPA got out of the way , energy would be the cheapest in the world for U.S. companies who could then outcompete China and other countries.
This POS Obama has closed 204 coal plants,
and done millions of other crimes,
piled on 11,000 new pages of federal regulations on business, and 13,000 pages more government regulations from obamacare coming,
did many unlawful executive orders,
6 trillion in new Obama federal debt etc.
you Obama get out of the United States you criminal, marxist, muslim socialist Obama.
I just signed up. Live in Oregon. We have mail in ballots. Stupid local GOP didn’t think there was a need for election day Get Out the Vote - here or nationally.
I just checked my email.
I guess I’m not in Romney’s Binder. He didn’t ask me to volunteer. sigh. BUT! he wants me to join him on election night to celebrate! Woo Hoo! R n R! ! ! !
Yes, we’re on first name basis. >>>giggles<<<
I signed up. All day. From red state of AL by way of TX.
This is about poll watching and documenting bad things that happen in the polling places in case there are post election lawsuits. I took the class here in FL from the campaign. If you are the sort of FReeper who does not mind a potential hostile situation for several to 16 hours, it is a good volunteer gig and well worth doing.
I just looked at the form. Is it a requirement to have a cell phone?
I don’t have one so I’m not sure if I should waste their time by applying if that’s the case.
I live in a county that voted 62% for McCain in 2008, so hopefully there wouldn’t be hostile situations here.
See Post 11. They want live reports of anything suspicious. So you need the ability to either send email or text. Do you have an iPad or tablet with remote internet access? Those would work as well.
I didn’t get the impression we would have to travel when signing up. I thought it was to oversee irregularities at election sites but here in Putnam I doubt I will see much. If it means travelling throughout NY I’m game.
I just checked my email.
I guess Im not in Romneys Binder. He didnt ask me to volunteer. sigh. BUT! he wants me to join him on election night to celebrate! Woo Hoo! R n R! ! ! !
LOL, I got the same email. I made another donation; who knows, you or I just might be in MA with President elect Romney election night. If I get picked, I’ll be one of those behind Hannity’s table jumping up and down!
Can be available in Dayton, Ohio on election day. Anyone else?
In my training we were told that we must have a cell phone but there was some talk about purchasing them for the volunteers who did not have one. It would not hurt to fill out the form and make this issue clear once you are contacted.
I don’t have anything with remote internet access.
I’ll just send a donation, seems the easiest way to help presently.
OK, I’ll sign up.
Anything can happen between now and Nov 6.
Maybe I can borrow one or something.
I signed up. In comments I said I could help work in Pennsylvania as my efforts would be fruitless in Maryland where I live.
” Dayton, Ohio”
Woohoo, glad you signed up!!
Liberty Township - between Dayton and Cincinnati. Signed up and went through phone and online training last week. Looks like two objectives
1) Update who’s voted so phone calls can be targeted to likely Romney voters who haven’t actually voted, and
2) Report “irregularities” - more of a by-product
If I’m assigned within Butler County, OH, concern will probably be more (1), high Republican area and goal will be getting out the vote, don’t anticipate much fraud will be tried here.
How is it to be determined who’s voted? Are you supposed to keep a count of how many people come to vote and report that in periodically? Then they compare those numbers with ‘08?
As I mentioned, I’m in a high % GOP area so they’d want the numbers of voters here to be high - higher than in ‘08.
I just signed up. Thanks for posting!
What do you do?
Sounds like fun, but we’ll be in Lima, Peru on election week.
They start with a complete voter list brought up to date for who’s voted early / by absentee. Using smartphone, then update by individual that comes in - they provide the list (hard copy if no smartphone) and then update through the day. This is exact - not sampling or estimating. Poll watchers are allowed to listen as the voter identifies him/her self and can periodically inspect the roles.
