This email from Mark Sullivan, NO on 1/Protect Maine Equality Communication Director, just hit my inbox.
This morning, the Bangor Daily News endorsed a "NO" vote on Question 1. The BDN is one of Maine's oldest and most respected newspapers, and their endorsement will be read by thousands of voters in key swing areas.

This is great news, and definitely a momentum boost as we go in to the final 17 days of this campaign. But we can't afford to let up now-- to win, we still need to get all our NO voters out to the polls. And the best way to do that is to get as many of them as possible to vote NO on 1 right now, during the early voting period.
That's where you come in. If you've got a phone and an internet connection, you can join Call for Equality, our massive Get Out The Early Vote virtual phone bank.
It only takes a couple of hours to make a difference, but to win, we must reach each of these voters. Will you join us for a Call for Equality shift?
If you've never made phone calls to voters, it's easy. We'll give you a training before your shift, a script, and all of the information that you need to identify our supporters. In almost all cases, you'll be talking to a Maine voter who supports marriage equality.
There are still too many voters who haven't voted early or didn't plan to vote until they were reminded about the urgency of their one vote in this off-year election. Often, that extra nudge from a dedicated supporter by phone is what motivates someone to turn out to the polls.
Celebrate this wonderful endorsement by joining Call for Equality and helping us turn all of our NO on 1 voters out to the polls!
