UPDATE 6-4-08: Riding a wave of superdelegate endorsements and delegates won in the final two primaries, Obama reached 2,118 delegates last night, June 3, and clinched the nomination in a historic victory. Working together, we made a difference in this race. We helped voters from around the country generate an estimated several thousand e-mails and phone calls to superdelegates, and gathered thousands more signatures on petitions in seven states including North Carolina, where we first organized. Thanks to our coalition members and supporters, plus everyone who visited our site and used the tools here to e-mail, call, or sign a petition to superdelegates. We let our party leaders know their constituents wanted Obama to be the Democratic presidential nominee in 2008, and they listened!
We are contacting local superdelegates, and gathering signatures from voters in our communities asking superdelegates to back Obama. Our focus is on states and districts where Obama won the popular vote.
This site contains a state-by state list of superdelegates, who is backing Obama, Clinton, or undecided, and how to reach them.
NOTE: As of June 4, when Hillary announced her intention to suspend her campaign, we stopped updating this list and removed most contact info.
What We Can Do
If superdelegates hold the key to the 2008 Democratic nomination, we the voters can take action to help determine the outcome.
UPDATE 6-2-08: Two days after the May 31 compromise to seat the MI & FL delegations, there is hope that this endless nomination fight is wrapping up. House Democratic Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) has leaked his pending Obama endorsement, MSNBC is reporting 34 House members will announce for Obama tomorrow, and CNN says most of the remaining undecided 17 Democratic Senators will back Obama later this week. Hillary will appear at a Tuesday night event in New York that many anticipate will be her concession speech. Will it all be over tomorrow night? We'll see.
UPDATE 5-29-08: Our Massachusetts supporters have launched an online petition to the MA superdelegates. If you want to sponsor an online superdelegate petition in your state, contact us.
UPDATE 5-15-08: Now that Obama has won North Carolina's May 6 primary by a large, 14-point margin, we have launched an online petition asking all N.C. superdelegates to unite behind his candidacy. N.C. voters can sign the petition HERE. Virginia voters can sign the online petition to VA superdelegates, started by VA state Democratic officials in April.
UPDATE 5-13-08: A costumed team of SuperVoters for Obama today delivered petitions from 2,000 North Carolina voters to Gov. Easley, asking him to support Obama in his role as a Democratic superdelegate. Our costumes may have been a little silly, but our message to Gov. Easley and the other N.C. superdelegates was serious. On May 6, North Carolina voted for Obama by a large margin, and now it's the superdelegates' turn to act.
UPDATE 5-9-08: On the heels of Obama's May 6 victory in North Carolina and Indiana near-win, has the logjam broken? News organizations including ABC News and Politico reported that Obama picked up nine SD's today and has pulled ahead of Clinton in the superdelegate race, overtaking her long-time advantage. Yes We Can!
UPDATE 4-16-08: Voters for Obama wants to thank both Democratic Reps. David Price and Mel Watt for their endorsements today. We're glad they listened to North Carolina voters, 2,000 of whom have signed petitions in the last two months asking N.C. superdelegates to back Obama, including more than 500 in Rep. Price's district.
