We will have long lines everywhere. Our precinct chair is arranging for volunteers to support those who are waiting. Yours probably is also.
Here are a few ideas.
Please contribute more ideas.
I'll see you there.
- Bring folding chairs to lend to tired voters.
- Bring baseball caps to lend to overheated voters.
- Bring water for thirsty voters.
- Bring teeny slips of paper that say
If you are tired, wait in line.
If you are scared, wait in line.
If you are hungry, wait in line.
If you want to taste freedom, wait in line.
Bring song lyrics. Print hundreds of copies, on paper, so everybody can join in.
- We Shall Overcome
- The Water is Wide
Please give me some more titles.
- Here I am Baby! Signed, Sealed, Delivered
Advocacy for a specific candidate is forbidden within a certain distance of the polling place. It will probably be easy to find where the boundary is marked. You can't bring your Obama sign any closer. You can't go any closer wearing an Obama pin (unless you're actually in line to vote).
If you bring water to people, go ahead and give water to that one McCain voter amidst the 900 Obama voters.
I would think it's still okay to sing We Shall Overcome within the boundary. After all, it doesn't really name a specific candidate, now does it?
