Obama campaign doing more canvassing this weekend

by: desmoinesdem

Fri Jul 25, 2008 at 20:05:35 PM CDT


Calling all volunteers: if you've got a few hours to spare this weekend, the Obama campaign would love to have you participate in one of the 26 neighborhood canvasses they have planned.

Go here to RSVP.

Most of the door-knocking will be on Sunday afternoon, but a few places will do it on Saturday morning or afternoon.

Here are the places and times where canvassing will happen. I have added the county name next to the city or town:

Ames Canvass (Story County)
Sunday 1 pm

Fort Dodge Canvass (Webster County)
Sunday 12 pm

New Hampton Canvass (Chickasaw County)
Sunday 1 pm

Anamosa Canvass (Jones County)

Newton Canvass (Jasper County)
Sunday 10 am

Cedar Rapids Canvass (Linn County)
Sunday 12 pm

Guttenberg Canvass (Clayton County)
Sunday 1 pm

Ottumwa Canvass (Wapello County)
Sunday 12 pm

Clinton Canvass (Clinton County)
Sunday 2 pm

Indianola Canvass (Warren County)
Sunday 10 am (I haven't heard of a Sunday morning canvass in Iowa--maybe you should double-check the time when you RSVP)

Sioux City Canvass (Woodbury County)
Sunday 12 pm

Council Bluffs Canvass (Pottawattamie County)
Sunday 12 pm

Iowa City Canvass (Johnson County)
Saturday 10 am

Dubuque Canvass (Dubuque County)
Sunday 1 pm

Mason City Canvass (Cerro Gordo County)
Sunday 1 pm

West Des Moines Canvass (Polk County)
Sunday 1 pm

Winterset Canvass (Madison County)
Sunday 12 pm

Des Moines Canvass # 2 (Polk County)
Sunday 1 pm

If you click the link above to RSVP, you will get more details about where and when to meet up.

Please consider posting a diary here afterwards about your experience. Those are fun to read. You don't have to include photos--you can just tell the story, like icebergslim did here and clarkent did here.

By the way, John McCain's campaign website now lists contact information for five field offices in Iowa. It's not clear from that page whether a sixth office will open in southeast Iowa at some point, or whether field operations for southeast Iowa will continue to be run out of the state headquarters in Urbandale, as they appear to be now.

I reported recently that the Obama campaign has 15 field offices open in Iowa, with two more planned in Cedar Rapids and Iowa Falls. I have since heard that there will also be an office opening in West Des Moines, so the total number of offices in this state will be at least 18.
