As a bit toward explaining the recent slowdown in LFT blog posts, let me offer two clues:
TrueBlueAction.com and Onlinephonebanking.com which yours truly has been working many long hours developing, designing, programming along with the inimitable Glen Maxey and Hunter Ellinger.
With these tools, ‘every volunteer can phone, walk, register or GOTV their friends and neighbors in their precinct, local area or across the state’ and in just the last two weeks of soft-launch testing, hundreds of people from all over the state have contacted thousands of voters. We can ramp that up and contact 10, 25, 100,000 voters before election time?
so spread the word and thanks for helping!
For those that didnt get or didnt read a recent Maxey blast:
I want to introduce you to a dynamic new online set of tools at www.TrueBlueAction.com
It is my hope that you’ll make use of the many tools you find at this innovative new site.
It has been created by a new political action committee, True Blue Action PAC, whose sole reason to exist is to make tools available to identify and turn out Democratic voters for candidates at all levels.
Chris Bell, Democratic nominee for Governor, has been instrumental in helping us get off the ground. His campaign understands the need for ALL Democrats running at all levels to assist in turning out voters for each other.
There is NO COST to use these tools. They are open, accessible and free. TrueBlueAction simply asks that you use them to work for Democratic issues and candidates.
Ever want a walk list, phone list, or other data for your street, precinct or area? Here it is!
On this site, you’ll find some easy to use tools. Among them are:
a) Build a walk list to canvass your street or are
b) Print out pre-filled accurate Mail Ballot Applications for seniors, disabled, or those who’ll be out of town
c) Use the Online Phone Bank to call to ID voters, and GOTV during early voting and on election day to turn out the vote in your precinct or anywhere in Texas!
d) Email your friends across Texas voting reminders with their early voting locations
e) Build a list of voters you know (friends, co-workers, etc.) to “turn out to vote”. Get daily reminders whether they’ve voted early if you’re in a county that has electronic access to early voters.
f) Register new voters and make a retrievable list by entering them in this system so that they’ll get voting reminders.
g) And much, much more as we proceed and great volunteers add tools!
As we improve this site, we’ll send you updates of new tools that have been added. Thanks to the creative energy of lots of volunteers, we’re literally changing the way grassroots politics happens across Texas.

There is now no excuse for someone not being able to help our Democratic candidates.
Every volunteer can phone, walk, register or GOTV their friends and neighbors in their local area or even across the state!
