Voters who failed to have any voter activity (for example: votes, signs a petition, etc.) or failed to respond to the confirmation mailing during that 4 year period

The Obama campaign has opened another office located at 4071 Harvard Plaza, Suite 110, in the Lee Harvard Shopping Plaza. Mayor Frank G. Jackson and Ward 1 Cleveland City Councilman Terrell Pruitt were there for a canvass kickoff event with Obama for America Volunteers in Cleveland.
Jackson and Pruitt both discussed why it is important for Clevelanders to re-elect President Obama. Pruitt let everyone know how Ward 1 is known to be one of the largest voting sections in Cleveland.
Jackson noted how he has to be in support of President Obama and that’s why he is going door to door meeting and greeting the people in the Lee Harvard area.
“The president needs four more years to make a difference in the lives of all people and to further his ObamaCare plan,” said Pruitt.
The future is what President Obama spoke about when he came to Cleveland. “There is one place I stand in complete agreement with Mr. Romney,” Obama said. “This election is about our economic future,” said President Obama.
“Everyone must do their part this November; you must make sure you are registered, so your vote will count. If you have a question, that’s why they have offices like these, so they can help you with any questions.”
Nelson Devezin, who serves as the Regional Field Director (Cleveland Wards 1, 2, 4, 6,Cleveland Heights, Highland Hills, Warrensville Hts., Bedford Hts., Bedford, Maple Hts., Garfield Hts.), shared with the Call & Post all the places where people can register to vote.
Voters who failed to have any voter activity (for example: votes, signs a petition, etc.) or failed to respond to the confirmation mailing during that 4 year period are required to be removed from the eligible voter registration list. The numbers are important to Devezin. So far, in Cleveland, they have registered 275,492 voters.
“These voters are going to make a difference this election,” said Devezin.
From now until November 2012, OFA volunteers will continue to engage millions of Ohio voters in personal, neighbor-to-neighbor conversations about the president’s achievements to date, such as rescuing the auto industry, which supports 1 in 8 jobs in Ohio; investing in manufacturing sector, which has added 44,700 jobs in Ohio since the recovery began; and his ongoing efforts to rebuild the American economy and restore middle class security.
Lynnie Powell, who serves as the Regional Political Director, attended the kick off. She walked with the mayor and councilman in the Lee Harvard area. “We must get people motivated to vote in November. This election is so important,” said Powell.
