non-US citizens for Obama

I work with a number of non-US citizens and I keep accidentally asking them if they've voted yet, then catching myself.

At dinner tonight I accidentally asked a German coworker if he'd voted yet and his answer surprised me: because he's not able to vote, he instead volunteered for the Obama campaign this weekend, calling voters in swing states and encouraging them to go vote. He figures he did his part that way, probably doing more good than 1 California vote anyway.
