SAN FRANCISCO ― Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA) will be partnering with the state campaigns in Washington, Maryland, Minnesota and Maine in launching the “Phone from Home” program through Election Day together with our over 50 partners in the Campaign for 20 Million More.
The campaign begins Saturday, Nov. 3.
“The key to winning marriage equality is contacting our supporters to turn out at the polls on Election Day,” said Brian Silva, MEUSA executive director. “The Phone from Home program enables our dedicated volunteers from coast-to-coast to make simple but powerful Get Out the Vote (GOTV) calls from their own homes to remind fair-minded voters how critical it is that they get out and vote.”
“We are on the verge of making marriage history this November with marriage rights on the ballot in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington,” said Stuart Gaffney, MEUSA media director. “That’s why it’s exciting to see so many volunteers signing up at www.20MillionMore.org – by spending just a few hours of time making calls from home, we are laying the groundwork today so that wedding bells can ring out tomorrow.”
The program provides training, scripts and the technology to enable volunteers to make calls from home using just an internet-enabled computer and phone.
