    5) Take advantage of early voting.  Every candidate should know every county and precinct in their territory.  What precincts can they win?  What precincts are low turnout?  Why?  Plaster low turnout precincts with voter registration cards and drives.  Use phone calls and signup lists to identify strong supporters, and get them to vote early.  Late cycle ads will not have any effect on someone who's already voted.  Eliminate the "gotcha" lies by booking your votes before the attacks air.  Get people used to early voting.  Push people who don't like to participate or are just too busy to realize that they have plenty of time to make a decision, just decide.
