Manchester – Today, Senator Elizabeth Warren joined New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen as she kicked off her ‘Get Out The Vote New Hampshire Tour.’ Hundreds of volunteers and supporters were at the grassroots canvass kick-offs in Durham, Concord and Keene to launch the Shaheen campaign’s get out the vote effort 10 days before Election Day.

“Senator Warren is a champion for middle class families,” said Shaheen. “She knows a thing or two about Scott Brown, and it’s so great to be with her in New Hampshire today talking to voters about what’s at stake in this election.”

“While Scott Brown only decided to show up in New Hampshire after he lost to Senator Warren, I’ve been working to making a difference for small businesses and middle class families here for decades. I will always put New Hampshire first, not Big Oil, not Wall Street and not companies that outsource American jobs,” added Shaheen.

Recently, Senator Shaheen worked with Senator Warren on legislation that would allow students to refinance their loans at lower rates.

Jeanne Shaheen has deep roots in New Hampshire, raised her family here and her record proves she shares our values. In the Senate, she stands up for what she believes in, like equal pay for equal work. And she takes on the big corporations, like the big oil companies, fighting to close billions in special tax breaks.

Meanwhile, Scott Brown supported nearly $19 billion in special breaks for Wall Street and over $20 billion in tax breaks for the world’s largest oil companies, which made over $90 billion in profits last year. Brown also voted to protect special tax breaks for companies that outsource American jobs.

After each canvass kickoff event, hundreds of volunteers and supporters across the state went door to door and made phone calls, talking to their friends and neighbors about what is at stake on Election Day, and urging them to get out to vote.

Get Out There And Vote Today! Then Help GOTV!

Well it if finally NOV 6th 2012! Many of us are so happy that it is finally election day. Before I can rest and move on from all the election politics I want to make one more reminder.

GET OUT AND VOTE!

If you do not know where to go and vote, you can find it here.

Remember that for no reason can you be turned away from voting in New Hampshire.  Even with the new Voter ID Laws you can still register at the poll and vote  with or without an ID.   While I hope there is no problems with the new Voter ID Law there are a few ways you can help ensure this does not happen.  If you see a problem, report it immediately. Call 1-888-939-5932.  You can also review some of the changes at NH Voter Protection.

I hope by now that you have done all your research and know who you are going to vote for.   In case you have not, we hope you will support

  • Barack Obama for President / Joe Biden for Vice President
  • Maggie Hassan for NH Governor
  • Carol Shea-Porter in NH CD01
  • Ann Kuster in NH CD 02

While these are very, very important races the State Races are important too.  Take a few minutes to check your NH Progressive Voting guide.  See who has endorsed who in this election.  You can also see how they voted last year using the Granite State Progress ‘Legislator Report Card’.

Lastly, the NH Constitutional Amendments.  I have talked about these amendments since they were proposals in the house.  We are urging everyone to vote NO on Questions 1, 2, and 3.   For more information on Question 1 (taxes), or Question 2 (Court Reform). Also see Protect NH Constitution.

 The most important thing I can say is GET OUT THERE AND VOTE.  While we may agree on some issues and disagree on others your vote is important.  This election could be the closest in history and New Hampshire is one of the most important states this year.  We need everyone to get out and vote.  We also need your help getting everyone else out to vote.  Start by sharing this message on your social media. Then you can help get out the vote at one of these locations.

Canvassing With AFL-CIO Sec-Tres Liz Shuler

NH AFLCIO LABOR DAY BREAKFAST 2012 -1

AFL-CIO Sec Liz Shuler and NHLN Blogger Matt Murray

Brothers and sisters,

A very special guest will be joining us for our Labor Walk on the Seacoast next Sunday. Liz Shuler, secretary-treasurer of the AFL-CIO, will knock on doors with us in Sunday’s “Walk for Working Families”.

Secretary-Treasurer Shuler knows more than anyone how important elections are for working families. She knows this election will determine whether we have collective bargaining in New Hampshire, which has brought so many Granite State families into the middle class, and she knows that you can’t raise a family unless you can earn a living wage. Can you join Liz this weekend in walking for New Hampshire families?

Walk for Working Families

LIUNA 976

155 West Road, Portsmouth

Sunday, October 21st, 1-4 p.m.

Liz Shuler understands that real change happens when we have real conversations about how to build better and happier families. She’s spent the last few years mobilizing young workers – and now young worker groups across the country are helping turn the tide in states like Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. She is changing the conversation around what’s important in this election, by getting women to host house parties to talk with their friends, daughters and mothers about why they vote.

You can start the conversation with your own family and friends – bring them to our walk on Sunday and prepare to be fired up by Liz about what these walks mean for Granite Staters. If you can’t make it on Sunday, don’t worry – we have another walk on Saturday in Nashua.
