Are you comMITTed to helping Romney win?!
The information on this page will help you find out the best ways you can help.
The race to the White House will hinge on the outcome of the “swing states”. Three-fourths of the states are virtually set as to which candidate they will support. The candidates will not spend limited resources trying to win these immovable states, but rather focus all time, money and efforts on the swing states. A very small percentage change in the voter turnout in these states will make the difference between winning and losing the election. The Romney campaign has identified 12 states that could potentially be won by either candidate.
The swing states are (by electoral vote count): Florida (29), Pennsylvania (20), Ohio (18), Michigan (16), North Carolina (15), Virginia (13), Wisconsin (10), Colorado (9), Iowa (6), Nevada (6), New Mexico (5), New Hampshire (4).

I am in one of the swing states. How can I volunteer?
The Romney campaign is coordinating a massive ground effort in the 12 swing states. In these states alone there are 270 local campaign offices. The local offices make phone calls, distribute signs, and go door-to-door to identify those who are voting for Romney. Identifying the Romney voters is vital since this information is used to remind them to get out to vote on election day. The Romney campaign has recruited 20,000+ precinct volunteers for election day. This task force will attend each of the polling stations and report when identified Romney supporters have come to the polls. Once Romney supporters have voted their names are removed from the calling lists. Those who have not yet voted may then be contacted with accuracy and encouraged to get out and vote! This is a highly sophisticated effort and is crucial to Romney’s victory.
