Getting out the vote: Clarice
Sally King, Digital Intern
“I was waiting for the call – I wasn’t a hard sell at all! This has been such an incredible experience — the energy in the field office is contagious, and I always leave with a positive feeling. I’m really proud of the fact that I have been able to do this.”
Through hours and hours of talking to voters on the phones at the field office, she’s made a lot of new friends, too.
“A lot of people come in and out of this office for a canvass, a phone bank or to pick up a yard sign. At this point, we all know each other by name — and I consider everyone a new friend.”
Clarice encourages anyone and everyone to help Team Franken get out the vote in these final 20 days.
“I tell people that volunteering is good for you, because it is! I feel good because I’m working on something that means a lot to me. Instead of staying at home, I’m meeting new people and making phone calls for Sen. Franken and other DFLers.”
She believes Al should be re-elected because he fights for what is important to her and her family.
“I’m with Al, because he’s worked so hard for my family in the Senate. He wrote the 80/20 rule in the Affordable Care Act, which insures my health care dollars go into actual health care. And as someone on Social Security, I know he’s fighting to protect it from privatization, which is scary. But most of all, I’ve been impressed by his warm personality when he stops by the field office. He’s truly thankful for our work on this campaign.”
