GOP calling for office volunteers but don’t everyone sign up at once

Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan has sent out an e-mail missive urging supporters to register to vote or update their registration, especially if they’ve moved recently.

The e-mail links to a voter registration tool on Sen. John McCain’s campaign Web site.

The Nevada Republican Party also is contacting supporters in a search for volunteers to help with data entry. But, the party notes, takers should be careful to schedule a shift. There’s a limited amount of computers.

Republicans had better hurry. David Plouffe, national campaign manager for Sen. Barack Obama, sent this note to supporters this morning:

“I am proud to announce that our presidential campaign will be the first in a generation to deploy and maintain staff in every single state.

“The network of volunteers and the infrastructure built up during the historic primary season -- on behalf of all the Democratic campaigns -- have given us an enormous and unprecedented opportunity in the general election.”

Besides Nevada, where Obama has a significant infrastructure due to the state’s presidential caucus, the campaign’s list of competitive states includes Virginia and Montana, Plouffe said.
