MILWAUKEE -- As the Democratic National Convention continued Wednesday, September 5th -- on the eve of President Barack Obama's address to the Convention, volunteers on both sides of the aisle were hard at work making calls to voters -- asking for support for their candidate.
Volunteers with different points of view share an important role in advance of the 2012 presidential election -- connecting with voters by phone, and getting them to the polls.
Democrats like Nathaniel Smith volunteer to reach out to voters.
"I'm a student with UWM and I'm with Students Working for Barack Obama," Smith said.
At a Republican volunteer center Wednesday, Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Rebecca Kleefisch stopped by to help motivate volunteers.
"Wisconsin will go red on November 6th. We will win for Romney/Ryan," Kleefisch said.
Over 60 days remain of calling and courting voters.
"We have such a robust get out the vote apparatus," Kleefisch said.
"I wouldn't look at it as a machine. It's a straight-up grassroots campaign. We connect with the people," one volunteer said.
