Street Fairs and Lawn Chairs….. bring it on home!
Ok, so they are cutting back voting hours and making us stand in line for hours (days?) to vote, so what are we going to do about it?
Bring your lawn chair or one of those ubiquitous white resin chairs to the lines. Put Obama stickers on them. Organize a few runners to manage them. Bring umbrellas or blankets. Hats. Sunscreen. Water.
Make it a party. Provide entertainment.
FInd the soft Independent voters. Talk up the Dems. Put down the jerks rigging the rules that are making us all go through this. Make it a joyous effort to save the vote.
Find runners to explain the full ballot issues. Point out the importance of the down ballot races.
Get in line early, like you were waiting for event tickets or store sales. Have a couple hundred folks in line before they open. Tape it. Get it up in the media if possible. (How about a few hardy souls staying in line in FLA right through the weekend? Wouldn't that get at least some attention to the issue?)
Have fun, it can be contagious, and just might move a few votes as well.
We are ahead, now let's bring it on home. Clean Sweep.
