  •  What's most effective on election day? (none)
    I've been canvassing in NH with ACT and signed up to go back on election day.  When I signed up ACT wasn't sure what we'd be doing.  It turns out we'll be canvassing some more, trying to get the last undecideds who they've been calling for the past nine months to go to the polls for Kerry.  I worry that canvassing on election day may not be the most effective way to GOTV.  For one thing, I worry that these people will feel hounded, which will alienate them.  For another, I  wonder if our attention shouldn't be turned to those who have committed to JK.  Any thoughts?  Advice?

    thanks

    •  Good Question (none)
      I was coming up to NH for ACT this wknd. and then on election day.

      I don't think physically confronting them at their homes on election day is a good idea. Better to focus on getting every last known Democratic voter to the polls, and if that means driving 50 miles into the sticks to every last tiny town, so be it.
