Tomorrow's General Election Kickoff Meeting

Don't forget, tomorrow at the Duke of York pub we'll meet to kick off the General Election with a drink and a smile.

The room may be a bit over-crowded (that's what we call a mixed blessing) but I hope you'll stick around for a riveting update direct from recently returned Obama campaign staffer Bill Rubin, Voter Registration training, and an update on the role of the Democratic party in this election from Democrats Abroad Chair Bill Barnard.

Plus, I'd like to discuss with your our plans for the Obama London Group and ways you can pitch in to help us Get out the Vote for Barack this year.

Time: 19:00

Location: The Duke of York Pub New Cavendish Street (just off Marylebone High Road)

If you've already RSVPed - many thanks! If not, but you do plan to attend please do drop me a line.

And finally, as a sneak preview of tomorrow's discussion - once you've had your voter registration training from Stephanie tomorrow, I'm hoping that a whole bunch of you will want to get involved with the Democrats Abroad Voter registration program. There are loads of fun and fabulous volunteer opportunities coming up where you can help to register US voters - below is a sample list.

24 June - 12:00 - 2:00pm - Goldman Sachs - Fleet Street - Need one more person
