Transport Workers (TWU) from Philadelphia's Local 234 and New York City's Local 100 are collaborating to make sure that voters in critical swing-state Pennsylvania get out and vote. After Republicans bragged about how the state's new voter identification law was going to allow presidential candidate Mitt Romney to win the state, a state judge said otherwise and blocked the new measure for this presidential election. Activists were inspired to work harder than ever to make sure that the state, which could be vital in determining the outcome of the presidential election, voted once again for President Obama.
TWU members have been canvassing every weekend bringing accurate information to the voters and gathering information about the voters as well. With New York a strong Obama state, workers from the Empire State have been helping out their Keystone State neighbors. In this video, volunteers emphasize the importance of the right to vote, and how important it is to re-elect the president and prevent Romney from implementing an anti-worker agenda.
