Barack the Vote

There are seven offices (yep, seven) at which you can volunteer in Montgomery County so no excuses for not doing your bit--locations below the jump. I went down to the Bethesda office and then walked over to the satellite office in the Metropolitan and made around fifty calls for Obama after lunch. You can even make calls to get out the vote at from the comfort of your home. Do it for America.
