Urgent: Help Get Out the Vote Against Prop 8 in California
The majority of volunteer work falls into two categories: (1) On Election Day, staffing polling place visibility events (100 feet away, of course) by passing out campaign lit and making sure voters know which way to vote, and (2) Visibility events in supportive areas: waving signs, passing out stickers and talking to interested voters.

Rex Wockner attended the anti-gay Christian right wing "The Call" prayer and fast rally to pass Proposition 8 on saturday. He has some frightening pictures.
Rex writes: "It's too strong to say that attending this national Christian event in support of Proposition 8 today at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium made me feel raped or like a Jew touring a camp. But I did have those thoughts. It was certainly painful...The crowd prayed, sang, spoke in tongues, prostrated themselves, sobbed (for California, for marriage, for the homosexuals) and, on numerous occasions, whipped themselves into a true frenzy."
Jeremy at Good As You has some audio clips from the event.
Rex also attended the counter-rally in San Diego's Hillcrest neighborhood. The crowd was estimated at between 7,000 and 10,000.
The national implications of this ballot measure could not be greater. DONATE HERE.
