Grassroots America announces 'get-out-the-vote' strategy

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Grassroots America - We the People shared their 'get-out-the-vote' strategy for the upcoming November election today, and they're looking to make an impact beyond Texas.

The group said they'll be focusing on canvassing door-to-door, making phone calls, and registering voters at churches in Smith County.

They said they're recruiting volunteers to campaign for the Romney-Ryan ticket and other conservative candidates, not only in Smith County and in Texas, but in Ohio and Virginia as well.

"We're targeting those two states, we're going to be trying to send people there to work with them, go door-to-door," said Jim Speiran, Chairman for Get out the Vote and Ballot Integrity for Grassroots America-We the People. "We're looking at doing individual private postcards to people that they say they want to target and we'll also be doing phone banks for them. Those are areas that are very important."

The group said they will also be focusing on issues of voter integrity in East Texas.
   
The deadline to register to vote is October 9th.
