Dems phone-bank, work to get out the vote

The Afro-American Cultural Center was buzzing today as the Yale College Democrats worked the phones to encourage Yalies to get out the vote.

The volunteers making the calls reminded students of the various polling locations and made it a goal to ask each voter the precise time at which they planned to cast their vote.

“Our goal here is to turn out voters. We are phone-banking in an effort to do everything we can to turn out Yale voters,” Yale College Democrats President Ben Stango ’11 said. The volunteers also texted and left voicemails to registered voters.

Apart from phone-banking, the Dems also posted fliers and put door hangers on dorm room doors to remind all those registered to vote of the importance of this year’s election.
