This year's Election Day isn't only about Obama -- it's about all the down ticket races, too, and sending a brushback pitch to Republican extremists (who, God help us, make the Democratic party look almost liberal by comparison). Daily Kos is helping to organize a massive get out the vote operation in Pennsylvania with the Urban League's Occupy the Vote (as you can see from the above video, Republicans are doing their best to fix the election here by suppressing Democratic votes).

Pennsylvania needs your help to counteract the new Voter ID law, which is intended to keep Democrats away from the polls on Election Day. This is part of an organized effort across state legislatures, and it's infuriating.

You have a few options. You can 1) sit on your hands and complain about what the Republicans are doing, or you can 2) volunteer even a few hours of your time FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME to make phone calls. If you are physically able and willing, you can also do canvassing, work voter registration tables, do data entry or give rides to the polls.
