Today is Election Day.
Over the past two years, our Campaign for Change has worked hard to do everything we can to restore your voice to the legislature.  And we’re going to work hard right up until the last minute today.
We need your help today to get us over that final mountain.

It’s looking good for our campaign, but it’s going to be close.  As close as last time.  Maybe closer.
In 2010, we came within 70 votes of winning.  And afterwards, we heard from at least 70 people, “If I’d known it was going to be that close, I would have voted.”
Let’s make sure this time is different! 

Here’s what you can do to put our Campaign for Change over the top today:

1.  Vote. 
This is one election in which every vote really will make a difference.  Don’t risk being one of those “if only I would voted” folks. Seriously.  🙂

The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  To find out where your polling place is, click here:   

If you need a ride to the polls, please call us at 699-0239 or 699-7372 and we’ll be happy to drive you to your polling place (and home again). 
2.   Get your friends and family to vote.    
See above about how every vote matters!
3.  Help us make phone calls.  
If you have even an hour of extra time today, come on down to our Get Out the Vote headquarters and help us make easy, fun “get out the vote” phone calls.  We’ll have good food, great company and a lot of fun.  For directions, call Jordan (699-0239) or Kevin (699-7372).
4.   Join us for our Election Night Party at Carl’s home.   
Everyone is welcome!  For directions, call Jordan or Kevin (#’s above).     
With your help, working together, today can be the day we finally restore the people’s voice to our government.    
Now’s our time!  
A Personal Message from Carl Trujillo: 
Over the last two years I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to visit with so many of you in your homes and businesses, at Neighborhood Listening Parties, at community events.  I’ve been honored by the trust you’ve placed in me in sharing your thoughts, your concerns, your ideas — and with your help, I will take those ideas to the floor of the legislature and fight for our shared values and priorities.    
I’m especially proud that we’ve run an ethical and honest campaign that put the people of our community first.  We’ve heard from so many of you that you’re proud of that, too — and it’s my hope that our Campaign for Change will be able to show good people — especially our kids — that it’s possible to be involved in our political process in a way that’s healthy, respectful and inclusive. 
I would like to thank everyone who has been a part of our campaign — my family, our staff, our volunteers, and most of all, all of you.  It is because of your enthusiasm for a different kind of government that represents the people over career politicians that we’ve come so very far.   
Whether you put a sign in your yard, came to a Listening Party, made phone calls, or talked about our Campaign for Change with your friends and family, I’d like to offer my most sincere and humble appreciation and gratitude. 
Thank you to all of you.  Now let’s head for the polls and put our Campaign for Change over the top!   
Yours truly,
Carl Trujillo
Citizen Candidate
