Hi, I have noticed this in several diaries and have posted comments about it as well as kosmailing the diarist. Every time I click n the link to volunteer to phone bank via Workers Voice, I am led to a page to donate. I don't see anything about phone banking. And when you go to the Workers Voice site, I still can't find any links to oneline/virtual phonebanking.

Please let me know. In addition to my own interest, if I can, I want to post this link on as many FB pages and liberal sites as I can.

Thx/Shoshannad

    Here is a link where you can see the problem. There is an action link to Workers Voice at the end of this current front page diary. If you click it, as Shoshanna says, you get a link to donate, not a link to phone bank.

    I am suprised more people haven't mentioned this. Does it mean no one is trying to sign up to phone bank. ?

    Here it is again, in another front page diary (by Hunter) posted just now.

    The link says:
    Sign up to help get Democratic voters to the polls in swing states with Workers' Voice, the largest independent Democratic voter turnout operation in the country. You can participate no matter where you live.

    But, you can't sign up.

    ShoshannaD, a link to make calls was in a comment in the Night Owls thread tonight.

    It's through BarackObama.com. Maybe it would work for you. There is small link at the bottom to create an account here:

    Here is another place to make calls for Barack. MoveOn:

    Our online system will provide you with phone numbers to call, a script to read, and a quick training to get you comfortable. All you need is an Internet connection that you can use while you're also on the phone. And the desire to win!

    This was mentioned in a diary today by someone who has been making calls.

    Patriot Daily News Clearinghouse posted a better link for Workers Voice:

    http://fan.workersvoice.org/users/login

    Click onto tab "MAKE CALLS" on the top of page. If registered at site, it will take you to phone banking page that has the script and list of names to call. If not registered, it asks you to register.

    Here is PDNC's comment and info:
