Obama Election Night Party Tickets Offered In Exchange For Wisconsin Campaign Volunteering

Hoping to score tickets to President Obama's election night rally at Chicago's McCormick Place? You're in luck -- so long as you agree to knock on strangers' doors for two days up north in Wisconsin.

The Chicago Sun-Times' Lynn Sweet reports that the Obama campaign will be handing out a limited number of tickets to the president's election night rally on a first-come-first-served basis to participants in its its Badger State canvass.

The catch for spending election night in the midst of Obama and his big-dollar donors, therefore, is between four and six hours of door-knocking in Wisconsin in the days preceding the election.

As the Chicago Tribune notes, the Obama campaign previously used a similar model for volunteers who worked in the lead up to the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina this year.

"This is another organizing tool to help reelect the president," an Obama campaign official told the Tribune.

Not into the idea of a Wisconsin road trip? Any donation to the Obama campaign, according to NBC Chicago, will automatically offer donors a chance to meet the president on election night.
