Planned Parenthood Launches GOTV Phase of Voter Mobilization Effort


Planned Parenthood Action Fund’s "One Million Strong" voter mobilization project is entering its final, get-out-the-vote phase, the organization announced today. The campaign aims to send one million pro-choice voters to the polls.

"Over
the last 12 months, the Planned Parenthood Action Fund has reached out
to women voters across the country to educate them about women’s health
issues and the stark differences between the candidates," said Cecile
Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund. "This
Election Day, the One Million Strong Campaign will turn out one million
pro-choice, pro-women’s health voters in support of Barack Obama and
pro-women’s health candidates across the country.

PPAF will conduct "aggressive" GOTV efforts in Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin. When the "One Million Strong" campaign began, Richards said, "To keep our doors open, it’s clear that we need to step into the electoral arena."
