Subject: Thank you for voting

[First name of woman here]

North Carolina voting records show that you've voted. Thanks so much for casting your ballot early, and helping to move our country forward by participating in this critical election!

Now that you've voted, I'm wondering if you can help make sure as many North Carolinians as possible get to the polls.

If you're willing to pitch in, can you help get out the vote?

You can sign up to volunteer at -- we're always looking for folks to lend a hand by making some calls or knocking on doors. President Obama and other Democrats are counting on you to ask your neighbors to make their voices heard between now and November 6th. So come out to an event and do your part.

Thanks for all you're doing,

Here's the problem.

The woman lives on the eastside of Seattle. She was born in Bellevue. Has never lived on the East Coast. And isn't voting for Mr. Obama.

I am certain of this because I have known her since her birth.

She is my daughter.

This week, NBC's Today Show announced they have determined that Romney may win the popular vote, but that they feel President Obama has enough electoral votes wrapped up to be re-elected.

Have they already counted the votes? Or are they holding the votes they have forged, planning to turn them in on Election Day?

Thought you should know. Seeing Dino Rossi at the grocery store a while back reminded me, Washington State has had some funny outcomes in major elections.

Be Vigilant. Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Prayerful. Be Active, but not that active. Be Blessed.
