Mitt Romney wants you to take it easy this week. See a movie after work, grab some brunch on Saturday, maybe sleep in on Sunday. Why? Because Mitt Romney knows that this is the second to last week before the election, and if LCV members like you spend the energy to get out the vote in Virginia, he’s going to lose.
Virginia is one of the main states that will decide this election and right now polls show that it’s tied between President Obama and Mitt Romney. That means that every person we talk to in the next two weeks will make the difference between whether we keep an environmental champion in the White House or we spend four years under a president who wants to make our country into a corporate polluter playground. So will you come volunteer this week – even just for an hour or two?
We've got lots of great events you can join no matter whether you’re in Virginia, DC, or Maryland. Here are the details:

Please RSVP: Reply to this email to let me know if you’re a yes, a maybe, or if you'd prefer to volunteer at a different time this week. There are lots of other events in your area that I can plug you into.
Together we can not only turn out the vote for President Obama in Virginia, but we can also educate our neighbors about how the choices we make in this election will decide whether the places and wildlife we love will be protected for the generations to come. I hope you’ll join us to have those conversations and make a difference this weekend.
