  •  but we older ones do vote (2+ / 0-)

    and in my neighborhood, they vote in non-presidential elections on very local issues, like being friends with someone who is running for some Board.  Homeowners more, because they're already registered and know where to vote, and they have economic reasons, like voting up or down on a spending measure. That's what brings people out, yes or no for a school bond.  

    And you're political, we don't need to motivate you.  

    We need to motivate renters who are struggling to pay bills and save for a house or a vacation.  What would make them turn out after a long days work and before dinner?  

    Should we set up stations not too near the polling places and give free coffee and tea?  Maybe folding chairs?  They'd be inside challenging votes and we'd be outside not saying who to vote for but making people more comfortable and letting them know they're appreciated?  

    this coming up one is very important.
