    If you get a chance, ask  your riders to vote for me.  Myra Slone, I'm running against Trudy Wade in senate district 27.

    •  we are asking everyone to vote democratic (7+ / 0-)

      straight ticket.  and every voter that i have driven has voted straight ticket.  and all but one has voted for all the judges and non-partisan races.  or at least said they would.

      i was actually (as stated above) asked to walk up to the machine with several, and they did vote straight ticket + judges.  the only exception was one young girl who was overwhelmed by the whole process.  she voted straight ticket but skipped the non-partisan races (can't win them all)

      and i distributed the obama--straight ticket ballot yesterday.  people were really happy to get it.  i had several people walk by all of the people distributing campaign materials but when i said (softly) democratic ballot?

      they turned around and said--wait--yes, i need that.

      it was awesome, because the person next to me was handing out conservative voter guides (yuck!)
