Election Day is less than a week away.

We're contacting voters-- lots of voters-- and we need your help.

Yale professors Donald Green and Alan Gerber -- authors of "Get Out The Vote!: A Guide for Candidates and Campaigns" -- have years of research that shows direct personal contact with voters is the most effective way to earn support and get voters to the polls. Specifically, direct contact between volunteers and voters.

That's where you come in. We're making calls, knocking on doors and distributing camapign literature all over Summit County.

Women Decide 2012 tour brings national female leaders to Silverthorne

Some of President Barack Obama's top female officials said he is the clear choice for women on issues ranging from health care to economics at a Democratic rally in Silverthorne Monday afternoon.

Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, Environmental Protection Agency administrator Lisa Jackson, both of whom attended the rally on their personal time and not in a professional capacity, and Emily's List president Stephanie Schriock pushed the female vote hard Monday afternoon. They highlighted Obama's stance on equal pay for women and health care while targeting the GOP presidential and vice presidential hopefuls Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan's track record on gender issues.

The stakes could not be higher for women,” Schriock said. “Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and these Republicans want to send us back decades. They want to put us back in the kitchen. And let me tell you, if you put me back in the kitchen, no one's gonna eat.”

The Silverthorne visit, attended by dozens of cheering Democrats and elected officials, was the third of five stops the ladies made in the “Women Decide 2012” tour of Colorado in the president's RV Monday, campaigning hard among women voters, who will be crucial to an Obama victory. -excerpted from Caddie Nath's report in the Summit Daily News
