Foreclosures Leave Holes In Voter Outreachhttp://minnesota.publicradio.org/features/npr.php?id=1595649...Organizers are discovering scores of vacated homes in key battlegrounds that contributed strong turnouts in the 2008 election....And canvassers have been left with voter databases — an indispensable tool for getting out the vote — riddled with outdated addresses and phone numbers....Today, three of the eight states with the highest foreclosure rates are presidential battlegrounds: Florida, Ohio and Nevada. Candidate Barack Obama won these states in 2008, but voter frustrations about his economic policies have since led each state to elect Republican governors....Given months of polling showing that likely Republican voters are more engaged in the election, Democratic officials and strategists in both parties say the Obama campaign has the greater challenge of mobilizing its base.DB2
