    I ran a public school bond election campaign where we did very thorough phone ID followed up with poll-checkers in every precinct. We particulary tried to pull registered voters favorable to us who had an uneven record of turning out to vote. (Yes, we still lost, and there's no consolation prize for "better than expected" showings.) What surprised me, however, was how many people in this upper middle class suburb believed that WHETHER they had voted should not be public information. Not HOW they voted, but WHETHER they voted. Too bad we still can't put people like this in the stocks for a day to shame them.
