GOTV efforts go into overdrive in final days to Tuesday

Sundry get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts kicked into high gear over the past few days as Election Day looms. They include a number of regional efforts by unions, including AFL-CIO, SEIU, and the International Association of Machinists, as well efforts by pro-McCain or pro-Obama camps in particular states such as New Jersey, Texas, New Hampshire, and Alaska.

Various and sundry get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts kicked into high gear over the past few days as Election Day looms.

Polls show Obama handily winning on Tuesday, though a key message of the McCain campaign of late is that the much bandied-about numbers are misleading: the race is actually much closer, McCain boosters claim. The McCain campaign does seem to be showing some disarray in its messaging, however, with continued reports of running mate Sarah Palin speaking off script.
