Breaking Election News: Adverse Weather Likely to Affect Many Battleground States on Election Day, - Weather-Elect to Consult for Key Campaigns' Get Out The Vote Effort
John Travers, President of Weather Briefings, Inc. in New York City explained early this Friday morning why he created Weather Elect. "I have seen the apathy and indifference growing among many people I speak to, even close a couple of friends who I consider engaged" After realizing that he had to re-register to vote due to a recent move, 50 minutes before the very last registration form was entered, he said," I high-tailed it in a cab on a damp night to NYC election headquarters in South Manhattan. I arrived at 9:00 on the spot and the registrar was closing the door. I pleaded - Please let me VOTE! Who ever that gentleman was, thank you! I am probably the last registration form in the NY state system." Travers explained that his research concluded that weather has been often just another excuse,though sometimes quite valid, for people to stay home. " We wanted to change the paradigm" said Meteorologist, Steve Kryzanowski, and help campaigns - get out the vote. We felt our consulting services could be critical at this late date and actually make up the marginal difference in the very tight Presidential race and the many close races, that sign with us." Steve continued "We feel our site and media package are also a key part of the whole effort as they will provide volumes of information on where the weather may be adverse and most importantly, for everyone, how to get to their polling site on Election Day, in spite of the weather."

"weatherelect.com is geared up to bring the latest weather news on Hurricane Sandy as it rides up the East Coast over the weekend and into next week. More importantly, our staff of 8000 and our reporting team will observe and report on the aftermath of the storm and how it might effect voter turnout after potential significant damage over parts of New England" said John Travers, the creator of Weather-Elect Consulting. I created this business to help campaigns this year in particular debunk by deflating the effect weather has on voter turnout. There is a way to get everyone you wish to vote Out To Vote" Travers continued. Regardless of my own affiliations, I will work for the campaigns that hire me and my team to make sure their Get Out The Vote Strategy is successfully executed in the right places. And" Travers concluded, "we have 8000 extra employees ready to fill in where needed."
Matt Walton, the Director of Weather-Elects' GOTV for ALL stated, that for the media and general public they will provide "the latest Election Day forecast for all 50 states and close-ups in latest battleground states, information about weather and how it has swayed elections traditionally. He pointed out, emphatically, " most importantly, we will have all of the resources needed to defy mother nature and GET OUT THE VOTE!"
A New York City voter, Richard Haggar, said, as we caught up with him at a local coffee shop viewing the site, "This site is great! I am a weather and political junkie and love to track every bit of data. I get the latest election day forecasts, and interesting perspectives on the weathers' impact."
"What do you actually provide campaigns, I asked Mr Travers on his way out to meet with a client," "Weather-Elect can support a campaign in many ways by daily private video and audio meetings, information on suggested methods in each precinct as to how to get each campaigns volunteers, workers and phone banks to shift to those precincts which are critical and may have the worst weather, plus using our added staff to jump in where needed at the last minute and direct umbrella hand-outs, van routes and a whole variety of other concepts we look forward to offering to one of the presidential campaigns" - "hopefully starting today" he added.
"Our service will be invaluable in the Presidential race" said Mr. Amoako, VP of Marketing at Weather Briefings, Inc.."with the race this tight, and the nation undergoing a major meteorological shift, the campaign that hires our service will have a competitive advantage without a doubt!"
When asked if Hurricane Sandy means much to the election, Josh Kelly, Long-Range forecaster from Weather Briefings, Inc.said "we are very concerned about Sandy going left of center and effecting the East Coast. The models are driving this storm that way. While pre-voter turnout might be effected by Sandy, the long-range effects of the storm such as power-outages and washed out roads may cause difficulties on Election Day. Viewing his monitor at around 5 am this morning eastern time, Josh, the inventor of his own model Climo- Dome, used exclusively by Weather Briefings, concluded " The latest look at the new models suggests that we might escape the worst of it...but it is too soon to tell. Timing and phasing of Sandy and the major push of cold air dropping south and east out of Canada mean everything. We should have a clear picture later this afternoon on hurricanebriefings.com and weatherelect.com
