View Diary: Voter registration arrangement with health exchanges may not be as robust as administration claimed (25 comments)

  •  The exchanges are state-by-state, (0+ / 0-)

    though some are federally run because various states are run by jackasses.

    I'd be better to put in a state-by-state vote reg feature.  
    I don't know if the exchanges would have you put in name, dob, and address, or if that's just given to the insurers, but if there is one, they should be able to kick back a semi-completed voter form.  They still need an original signature, so it'd have to be printed out and mailed.  

    A lot of the really good reg targets would be on their parents plans anyway or participating in the medicaid expansion.  I mean, getting them registered is the most important, but if people register thru a state agency, the party doesn't get the same demographic or consumer info as gottavote provided during the campaign, and less opportunity to follow up to get that shit printed and mailed.  It's possible that online voter registration just isn't that useful to begin with except as a source of leads, but yes, this could be better, because any way someone is registered is better than nothing.  Still, if i were playing a partisan game, i'd resist cannibalizing the party's own voter targeting (which of course also means they have to do some).

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
