Obama needs 2,869 more volunteers on Election Day in North Carolina

President Barack Obama's campaign in North Carolina is looking for 2,869 more volunteers on Election Day. Yes, exactly 2,869 (though they'll probably take more if they can get it).

The number is the subject of an "urgent" email message from Obama campaign field director Jeremy Bird to Obama supporters Monday. It says "shifts available all day."

"We've got to get as many voters out to the polls as we can, period," Bird writes. "That's why we're trying to figure out just how many volunteers can make it out in Raleigh tomorrow."
