Members of the CHS Young Liberals Club work on campaign posters.
In a community as heavily Democratic as the city of Charlottesville, it comes as little surprise that the public high school is filled with the children of Democrats who in large part appear to reflect their parents' political leanings.
Most Charlottesville High School students were not old enough to vote for Obama in 2008 and many of them will not be able to vote for Perriello on Tuesday. Their age, however, is not slowing them down.
Max Potter is president of the Young Liberals group at Charlottesville High School. He is rallying dozens of his classmates to do what they can to help get Congressman Perriello re-elected. The group called nearly 800 voters last week and is hoping to do the same again Thursday night.
They will also be out in full force Friday night to welcome President Obama to Charlottesville.
"It's going to be free, open to the public, it starts at 5, nobody needs a ticket, it's going to be really, really awesome. I really hope everyone comes out," Potter said.
The CHS Young Liberals Club has more than 60 student members and many plan to canvas the city this weekend following the president's visit. Potter already met President Obama at an event in Richmond earlier this fall; he is hoping he will be just as lucky at the Pavilion Friday night.
