Henry Li was a hesitant Obama supporter when he opened his front door last weekend in Northern Virginia. By the time he closed it, he had committed to vote for the president. In the intervening three minutes, he spoke with Josh Friedman, a 33-year-old Obama campaign volunteer from Columbia. Friedman reminded Li how close the presidential race had become and cleared up Li's confusion about whether he was registered to vote. Forget debates and stump speeches. This is how presidential elections are won. And in the final weeks of the grueling campaign between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Marylanders are playing a big role in the effort to turn out the vote in states like Virginia and Pennsylvania - both of which will be far more decisive than the Free State in deciding who will live in the White House next year.
