Getting Involved In The Race For The White House
With the Presidential Election just 45 days away, there are many ways residents of North Central Florida can get involved -- without having to join the campaign crowds.
Both the Democratic and Republican Headquarters have encouraged people to volunteer, even if it means sending a text message or using the Internet.
The goal: To increase voter turnout. The Democratic office has volunteers making phone calls to tell people that Obama will be in Jacksonville Saturday. Meanwhile, the Republican office has a wide range of volunteers spreading the word, as well.
"We have every age coming in because everyone is interested in the future of our country," said Mildred Russell, McCain County Chairman.
On either side of the party lines, volunteers are showing up to spread the word.
"There are volunteers coming out of the wood work...It's like nothing I've ever seen before," Gainesville Mayor Pegeen Hanrahan said.
