Chasing ballots is the order of the day today at the Pima County Democratic Party Headquarters.

In 2008, the HQ was hoppin' with people making phone calls, but I think today was even busier than that historic day. I'd estimate there were at least 50-60 people making phone calls + who knows how many out knocking on doors.

I made 88 phone calls for President Barack Obama today. Mostly, I left phone messages telling voters that they had until 7 p.m. to vote TODAY, that they could hand-deilver their mail-in ballots (if they're still laying on the kitchen table), and that if they want to vote in person and don't know where to go, they can call the Pima County Recorders Office (740-3440). Since you are reading this on the Internet, you can go here and then go vote (if it's before 7 p.m.) Whatever you don't go where the Jeff Flake campaign tells you to.

Several local politicians and other Dem regulars stopped by the HQ while I was there. Here are a few pictures. For Tweets and more pictures from the HQ today and the Democratic Party Party at the Marriott tonight, check out my Facebook page. (Watch for live blogging… if WiFi is cooperative.)
