FROM: SDCDP * NEWS FROM THE GRASSROOTS ORGANIZING TEAM - www.goteamsd.org
THE TURF REPORT:
*Now that we are in the countdown to Election Day, we hope you've been able to reach many of the voters on your list. As you canvass, please remember the all-important "asks" and mark the responses on your list. If a voter was/is not home, please try to reach them a second time by phone or in person. Thank you for making and taking the time for this important and effective person-to-person voter contact!

◊ TURN IN YOUR LIST BEFORE IT EXPIRES AT 30 DAYS - If you are not finished with your list and it is close to that 30-day expiration, your coordinator can enter the data you have collected so far and provide you with a new list to use through October 28.

◊ TODAY TO OCTOBER 28 - This is the period for canvassing all remaining voters marked as Slate, Turnout or Persuasion on your list. Turn in your list for data entry as soon as possible, ideally within 72 hours of canvassing. All lists must be returned for data entry before the data deadline (October 29). Lists can be returned to your coordinator, your community data coordinator, or any one of our offices.

◊ OCTOBER 29 TO NOVEMBER 1 - Call all vote-by-mail voters in your precinct who are still hanging on to a ballot and urge them to mail it by November 1. Your coordinator can provide you with a list of voters who need a reminder call.
◊ NOVEMBER 3 TO NOVEMBER 6 - ELECTION DAY Work with our coordinated campaigns for Get-out-the-Vote (GOTV) and Poll Checking on Election Day. Details to follow.

◊ RESOURCES FOR YOU You probably already have them - but just in case - scripts and talking points to go with your list are on our GO Team website (username: goteamsd password: walk2win).
You can also access a complete list of endorsements to share with friends/families in other communities. We have doorhangers or flyers for every community in the county - these are available from your coordinator and in our offices. My Community is coordinated by Marcia Bookstein, [address removed], (858) 457-3024.

***WED NOV 7 at 12:00 / NOON The City Club of San Diego presents a program that brings together two great friends, RABBI MICHAEL STERNFIELD & REVEREND MARK TOTTER ! They will have a conversation in dialogue on: "Overcoming Barriers of Misunderstanding." Rabbi Sternfield, now at Chicago's Sinai Congregation, one of America's most influential Jewish synagogues, was formerly Rabbi at Temple Beth in San Diego. Reverend Mark Trotter was for 24 years the Senior Minister at First United Methodist Church of San Diego, Methodism's largest congregation in the west. The two men started what has become a tradition, Temple Beth and First Methodist joining in worship on Thanksgiving eve, alternating between both houses of worship. I am confident, knowing both men as I do, that this will be a special occasion, and I bid you join us. The cost for the 12-Noon luncheon is $20 for members and LJCDS parents, $30 to non-members. Reservations:[masked], or [address removed] Details on the event: www.cityclubofsandiego.com. (A NOTE ABOUT CAITLIN ROTHER: Caitlin's presentation last Saturday was terrific. She brought us full circle, from a young La Jolla High/UC grad to her various journalism stops, Springfield, Massachusetts to LA, to 13 years with the U-T covering politics to becoming a best-selling author. It hasn't been easy and challenges remain, as they do for most authors, but her story is impressive - and everyone benefited from hearing it, especially the LJCDS students). See you for the Mike & Mark show on the 7th. Cheers, George Mitrovich President *WHERE: In the Community Room at La Jolla Country Day School, 9490 Genesee Ave, La Jolla, CA 92037

************** ADDITIONAL  ANNOUNCEMENTS ************

*** FROM SDCDP HQ ***

***IMPORTANT!!! Calling All Office Volunteers ! Hello Wonderful Office Volunteers! It is down to the wire! We always need your help! If you have a couple of hours to spare, Please call Meg at[masked]-3367. Thanks so much for your help! Best, Meg Margaret Mandy Political Director, San Diego County Democratic Party, 8340 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., Suite 105, San Diego, CA 92111 Phone: (858)[masked] | Fax: (858)[masked] www.sddemocrats.org


Online Voter Registration Now Available in California -- For the first time ever, voters in our state can now register completely online -- no paper form needed. Californians whose current addresses match the address they have on file with the DMV can register (or reregister) at www.sandiegovotes.org. About 70% of people eligible to vote in San Diego County are still not registered. The deadline is coming up in just over a month, on October 22, so please share that website widely and make sure everyone you know is signed up! Especially in this presidential election year, new registrants and first-time voters are a key part of the Democratic electorate.


Volunteer to Sign Up New Voters -- Deadline is a few days away! Over the next few days, we have a chance to ensure that San Diego solidifies our status as a "blue" county by registering thousands of Democrats. We just need volunteers to staff our Democratic Party booths at upcoming events to reach out to potential voters and get them on the rolls. You can sign up at www.sddemocrats.org/bluecounty or call us at (858) 277-3367.


Spread the Word About This Election Through Social Media -- A study published last week by a UCSD professor found that one Election Day message sent in 2010 got at least 300,000 additional people to vote. Social media, including Facebook, will be even more important in informing and mobilizing voters this year -- and you can help. First, please "like" us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. And in the coming weeks, we urge you to share and retweet the County Democratic Party's messages and add some of your own! Just by letting your friends know that you're volunteering, donating, or voting to support Democrats, you'll be motivating them to get engaged too.
************************************************ * FROM MIKE THALLER & JOHN MATTES, MUCH BETTER CHOICES - NEWS & ELECTION INFO *

★MIKE THALLER & JOHN MATTES from [address removed]
Subject: El Cajon - owned and operated by the Lincoln Club El Cajon - Owned and Operated by the Lincoln Club! A "club" of Wealthy Republicans. The Republicans and the Lincoln Club have taken over El Cajon You are probably familiar with Lincoln Club, a "club" of wealthy, powerful Republicans. The Lincoln Club of Orange County is best known for funding Proposition 32. If passed, no money from working people through their Unions can be used for political purposes while SUPER PAC money and money from corporations can be used without restrictions! This is a followup to the Citizens United case that was also brought about by the Lincoln Club. With the blessings of the very Republican City Council of El Cajon, The Lincoln Club has been given full approval rights of any political signs placed in El Cajon. I have been told that the charter of the Lincoln Club of San Diego limits their jurisdiction to the City of San Diego. If that is true, it did not stop them from becoming the group who decides who can and can not have political signs in El Cajon. In any case, I am no legal expert but this sounds illegal to me (That pesky first amendment thing.) 

The East County Magazine did an excellent article on this that you can see (and tweet) at: bit.ly/Uouwnk BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
A "citizen" land owner, John Gibson, who is on the El Cajon "Blue Ribbon Commission" approached the El Cajon City Council complaining that there were signs on private property, placed by his tenants, for someone who is supported by pro-abortion groups. He was referring to Democrat Ben Kalasho who is running in the supposedly non-partisan El Cajon City Council race. Gibson demanded that he had the right to have such signage be taken down. He went on to say that he was concerned that Kalasho, a young Iraqi immigrant who is a Chaldean Christian, did not understand English.
*The mayor and council ignored the racist remark and had nothing to say about signs being taken down for people supported by anyone who does not believe the way Mr. Gibson does.

A group called "The Society of Christian Voters made this very well done video showing the hypcrisy of Mr. Gibson, the El Cajon mayor, and the City Council".  You can see it at: youtube/943Hfa3juSo. Take a look at the video and "Like" it. As much as we would like to take credit for it, this is not a Much Better Choices video. If you know who The Society of Christian re-tweet is, please ask them to contact us at [address removed] so we can have a nice chat.
WE NEED TO GET THE WORD OUT! We will be tweeting about this plase also tweet and retweet both the article and the video link. I recommend you use the Ifhtag #ElCajon Facebook tip If you still need a Facebook account or a Twitter account, you can get instructions on how to do it on our website at www.MuchBetterChoices.com.

Please Help Us - do more We would like to have the resources to produce even more videos and put some of them on the air. Our success in raising money from big donors has been less than steller.
So we are making it possible for us to accept small donations. If you can pitch in a few bucks, or ask your friends to kick in a few bucks, or find someone to pitch in a bunch of bucks, it would be a big help in this effort. You can find a link to a "donate" page on our website at: www.MuchBetterChoices.com . Or, there is a direct link at: bit.ly/QYcYGJ Any help to move this cause forward would be greatly appreciated. As always, if you have questions or suggestions you can contact us at [address removed].  Thank you all. John & Mike
