Obama starts the early vote mobilization: Iowa opens up Sept 27

In 2008, President Obama took a big swing through Florida, starting 18 days before Election Day.  I describe this in a forthcoming book chapter as the first get out the early vote rally in 2008.

It looks like the campaign is starting even early this year.  At a recent appearance in Iowa, Obama urged his supporters to start casting their ballots on Sept. 27, the first day you can vote “absentee in person” in the Hawkeye State.
