2012 Election Countdown: 10 Days Remaining

One hundred million. That’s the number of people who will cast votes in the 2012 election. Will you be among them?

With 10 days remaining until Election Day, make a commitment now to have a personal impact on the outcome of the election. Here’s what you can do:

  1. Talk about the election with your friends and family members in key states. Marriage is on the ballot in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington. In Wisconsin, we have a chance to send Tammy Baldwin to the U.S. Senate as the first openly LGBT senator. And there are a dozen key battleground states in the presidential election – including Colorado, Florida, Nevada and New Hampshire. Reach out to your family and friends now. Talk to them about why this election is so important to you and make sure they’re voting.
  2. Even if you don’t live in Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, or Washington, you can make a difference in the votes there. Use HRC’s Call4Equality to create your personal call lists to reach out to family and friends in these four states voting on marriage.
  3. The last days of an election are when campaigns need volunteers the most. Please spend an evening making calls or a half day on the weekend talking to voters. Visit HRC’s Election Center to find an HRC-endorsed candidate or campaign near you.
  4. Contribute to win marriage on the ballot this November or to support pro-equality candidates.
  5. On Election Day, take a half or full day off work to help elect a pro-equality candidate. Every campaign needs help generating visibility on Election Day and getting voters to the polls.

These are all small steps that can make a huge impact on the outcome of the elections. Don’t miss your chance to get involved. Find out more at
