| Diane -- |
I've got to share some numbers with you, because they show incredible progress in all aspects of our grassroots organization. All of it is thanks to you and millions of other supporters building this campaign from the ground up.
Now, I'm hoping you'll help take it to the next level for the final 17 days -- join Dashboard, our online organizing hub.
Here's the latest:
We've out-registered Republicans in every battleground state for the past THREE months.
Right now, we've got a total of more than 14,000,000 registered Democrats in battleground states like Florida and Nevada -- that means we have a 2,400,000-person lead over Republicans where it matters the most.
And when it comes to voting early in battleground states, we're in the lead in important states like Iowa and Ohio -- and ahead in ballot requests in Nevada.
In Ohio, all public polling shows that the President has a double-digit lead among those who have voted. And nearly two-thirds of all voter registrations in the state in 2012 were in counties that President Obama won in 2008.
In Iowa, we lead in vote-by-mail ballots cast, in-person early voting, total voting, and total ballots requested. We also lead by a wider margin than we did at this point in 2008 in both ballots requested and cast.
This is all possible because of thousands of hard-working volunteers, and more than 4 million people -- about 1 in 75 Americans -- chipping in to own a piece of this campaign. That's a record for American politics.
These figures tell a story about a grassroots movement that, with your help, has been growing stronger every day since 2007. They tell us that our work on the ground is paying off in a big way, but more than anything, they tell us that when supporters like you pitch in, you move the entire campaign and the entire country forward.
We've got to keep that momentum going until the last ballot is cast on November 6th.
If you really want to lean into the finish line, join Dashboard today and help get out the vote:

Contributions or gifts to Obama Victory Fund 2012 are not tax deductible.
The first $2,500 from a contributor to Obama Victory Fund 2012 will be allocated to Obama for America, designated for the general election. The next $30,800 from a contributor will be allocated to the Democratic National Committee. Any additional amount(s) from a contributor will be divided among the State Democratic Party Committees as follows, up to $10,000 per committee and subject to the biennial aggregate limits: OH (24%), FL (15%); WI (12%); IA (10%); NV (10%); VA (9%); CO (7%); NC (7%); PA (3%); and NH (3%). A contributor may designate a contribution for a particular participant. This allocation formula may change if following it would result in an excessive contribution. Contributions will be used in connection with a Federal election, may be spent on any activities of the participants as each committee determines in its sole discretion, and will not be earmarked for any particular candidate.
