  •  Hi nomandates! (16+ / 0-)

    Great diary, thanks.
    I live in a fairly blue district in the suburbs of Chicago, but somehow we always elect a Repub. congressman.  They always claim to be independent, but vote with the Repubs. 90% of the time.  Hopefully this time will be different.  Hopefully.

    I am a work in progress. Still.

    •  I think the difference is GOTV, broths. (10+ / 0-)

      Republicans are a well-oiled machine when it comes to getting their voters to the polls. We have to make up for lost ground and figure out how to get our voters to the polls.

      In some cases, that means first getting them registered. That's my focus during the next few weeks here even as I'm also organizing to GOTV in October and November. I am a first-time precinct chair and am learning on the job, but lots of more experienced precinct chairs are giving me tips and advice.

      Voting and hoping for the best hasn't been getting the desired results here, so I'm trying something different this year ;-)
