Both my brother and I have donated a small amount of money to Obama. My brother is in NYC. The Obama campaign found that we are connected on Facebook and today they sent an email to my brother telling him to call me to make sure that I vote.How creepy is this?
Here's the campaign email, sent last Friday (I'm changing the names):
Joe --Names are provided.
For Judy, Election Day is right now!
Some of your friends in critical battleground states are already able to vote -- but early voting ends on Friday in Colorado, Nevada, and Wisconsin, and on Saturday in North Carolina and Florida.
Our volunteers haven't been able to reach many of these people on the phone, so you're the only one who can get them to the polls before it's too late.
Let the folks below know they can still vote early. We'll send you a free bumper sticker to say thanks for reaching out.
Thanks for doing your part. This race is going to be close, and every vote counts.
We can't do it without you,
Deputy National Political Director
Obama for America
P.S. -- If any of these folks' numbers are saved in your phone, give them a call and tell them they should go to barackobama.com/lookup to get the info they need to vote early. President Obama needs their vote.
Time is running out to do the work it'll take to win. Please donate to the Obama Victory Fund now.
