      Well we had our first taker! And a lesson. If you move within the county you can go ahead and re-register with your new address. Or you can just write the local Board of Elections a letter with the information.

      We've had some positive interactions and a couple of interesting ones. The first guy told us we were not living in reality because votes are never actually counted. Another said voting is useless because we will still kill people no matter who we elect. I tried to talk him into voting just locally. Fun conversation.

      I like hanging out at Earthfare and getting in some people-watching.  We had several good conversations with folks; and a big part of what we are doing is working on getting people engaged and thinking about the elections.  And I was able to get a couple of folks thinking that we now have a shot at taking out Mark Meadows.

      By the way, Randall; when you went inside to return your coffee cup and we were packing up, I had someone ask about registering to vote in the city election two weeks from now.  I told him it was too late for us to be able to register him, but that he could still do the same day registration at any of the early voting sites.  He said he would do that.  So we can add him to the list  :)

      Thanks again for a great day!
