Lookahere y’all: if you’d like to continue the march of hope and change, including healthcare reform, we need as many Democrats in Congress as possible. Right now we really need a 60 vote super-majority. Ted Kennedy’s seat is up for grabs right now. It would be a shame indeed if that esteemed seat went to a guy who probably didn’t think much of Ted Kennedy or his 40 year crusade for healthcare reform.

If you live in Massachusetts (Boston, shout out if you’re in the house!), please take the time to vote today. Past elections have shown us how important a single vote can be. Your vote matters — be heard and be counted. If you’re not sure where to vote, click here for the polling location nearest you.

If you don’t live in MA, you can still help by encouraging folks to vote. Give em a call. This goes double for you if you’ve got family and friends in MA. Thanks in advance — it’s amazing what we can do with just a little effort.

From the Prez via Organizing for America email:

Right now, the polls are open to elect a new senator to the seat that my friend Ted Kennedy held for 47 years.

The choice could not be more stark, and the result could not be of greater consequence — for Massachusetts or the nation.

The Bay State can send progressive champion Martha Coakley to Washington to fight for everything we believe in — health reform, getting all of our money back from Wall Street, and holding corporate interests accountable.

Or the Senate can get one more person already walking in lockstep with Washington Republicans.

The polls are still open, the choice has not been made, and you still have a crucial role to play by calling voters in Massachusetts. In a low-turnout special election like this one, every single voter counts.

Please call Massachusetts voters now.

Opponents of change and progress have been pouring money and resources into the Commonwealth — they want to keep things just as they are.

In a race as close as this one, no matter how many voters you call, you could tip the balance.

So please make sure you do everything you can today. Click here to start calling voters:


If you were fired up in the last election, I need you more fired up in this election.

Thanks for everything you’ve done, and for your efforts in this final push,

President Barack Obama
