So, are local Dem parties doing every little thing possible to help ordinary people vote? In South Dakota, are Dems helping eligible Native Americans get the photo IDs they'll need to vote (there's a new law)? In St. Louis, are Dems and black churches spreading the word about just exactly what IDs a voter will need? Are we letting people know that if they double-vote, the ballot will be ignored? Are we encouraging absentee ballots, because a lot of people need to work on Election Day or can't find a babysitter? Just running a few commericals about how Democrats understand that working people may not have time to vote on Election Day would demonstrate that we are responsive to the needs of the ordinary Americans who work hard only to see that their government is not looking out for them. If we respond to their needs, they'll vote with us.
it's going to be close, so every little bit could help. This is why the Republicans "won" Florida, last time: they did every little thing they could do to prevent Dems from voting.
