The Obama campaign in Charlottesville spent Saturday going back to the basics, talking to voters face-to-face. It's part of what's being called "A Day of Action."
Volunteers were at the downtown mall office Saturday morning before canvassing nearby neighborhoods. With less than two months left before Election Day, the campaign wants to give the president the best chance of re-election as possible.
Charlottesville Democrats Chair Jim Nix said, "Ads on TV work somewhat, but what really works is people talking to people, especially people from the community. If your neighbors talk to you about why they are voting for the president, that's very effective in getting the president's message out and encouraging people to vote."
"The Day of Action" will continue through Sunday. Volunteers are welcome at the downtown mall starting at 10:00 Sunday morning.
