In Final 72-Hour Push, SEIU Members Get Out The Vote for Barack Obama and Other Working Family Candidates Across the Country
Date:10/31/2008

WASHINGTON, Oct. 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the final 72-hours of this campaign, more than 100,000 nurses, janitors and other volunteers across the country are joining 4,000 SEIU members, local and international staff who've taken extended time off the job to bring home victory for Barack Obama, Joe Biden and other candidates promising the change working families need.

SEIU's major GOTV operations are microtargeting key precincts and swing voters, as well as union households, in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.

"In these final 72-hours, SEIU members all around this country are doing their part to put America on a new path," said SEIU Secretary-Treasurer Anna Burger. "SEIU members have knocked on millions of doors and made millions of phone calls to carry our candidates across the finish line. By electing leaders who will help us achieve quality, affordable health care for everyone; economic fairness; good jobs that can support a family and the freedom to form unions without intimidation, together we will create new American Dream."

Credited by publications like Congressional Quarterly with giving Sen. Obama an enormous advantage in this race http://www.cqpolitics.com/wmspage.cfm?docid=news-000002965765, SEIU's members will step up their extraordinary electoral effort more than ever before to elect pro-working family candidates in this final weekend. For example, another 2,500 members from mid-Atlantic locals are traveling across the country to join their Change to Win brothers and sisters for rallies calling on candidates to rebuild the middle class in Pennsylvania while another 800 travel to Ohio and more than 260 will be in Virginia.

With 2 million members, SEIU is the fastest-growing union in the Americas. Focused on uniting workers in healthcare, public services and property services, SEIU members are winning better wages, healthcare and more secure jobs for our communities, while uniting their strength with their counterparts around the world to help ensure that workers-not just corporations and CEOs-benefit from today's global economy.
