Alabamians are suiting up in Florida this weekend, and it's not for SEC football. We're trading our shakers for clipboards and voter registration forms, and we'll be talking to supporters of the President on the campus of the University of Florida in Gainesville.

Dozens of volunteers will out in force registering students to vote and to answering questions about the President's accomplishments. President Obama understands that America has to out-educate the rest of the world to be competitive in the global economy, and his record on education shows that:

    Student loan reform

    Making college more affordable.

    Supporting teachers and students

    Partnering with states to raise standards

    Investing in community colleges

    Updating the post-9/11 GI bill

    Ensuring all students have a path to college despite citizenship status

Volunteers are available on campus this weekend to assist you. What can you do? Ask questions. Sign I'm In cards. Register to vote. Talk to your family and friends. Volunteer your time. VOTE in November. President Obama has the backs of our students. Do you have his?
