Obama Campaign Launching Voter Drive Program

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's presidential campaign is creating a voter registration program aimed at boosting activity among his core supporters.
     

The organization, called Project Vote, will try to increase participation among Obama's core supporters from 2008, including young voters, seniors, blacks, Hispanics, American Indians and gays and lesbians.
     

Obama's campaign says the project will try to increase voter registration and a turnout among voters who have not voted at high rates in the past. It will also reach out to voters who have
recently moved into a new state.
     

Obama officials have said a large turnout in 2008 helped Obama win the White House and it hopes to repeat that effort next year.
