Political activists in California launched a statewide effort this Saturday to get voters to the polls for the election this November 6th including some locations in the Los Angeles area. A dual purpose rally in support of Proposition 30 planned by the California Democratic Party was held at 1 p.m. at its office in Boyle Heights in support of Governor Jerry Brown's tax measure and to defeat Proposition 32, coined as the anti-union proposition.

California Calls also launched a massive effort Saturday whose goal is to contact 300,000 registered voters and get 200,000 people to vote who usually abstain - and with good reason. A poll performed by USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times discovered aside from Californian voter pessimism, that despite Obama's sizable lead over Mitt Romney, he is unlikely to repeat his historic 2008 margin of victory in California because of his diminished power to pull in people who don't traditionally support Democrats.
