A great day for a walk ...
It's 11am on Sunday, and in a few hours, my friend Sandee and I will return to the streets to continue our GOTV canvass. Yesterday, between us we went to roughly 250 homes.
We had a ball. Sandee and I have canvassed together, oh, about 15 times so far, but GOTV is the dessert we've been waiting for. This is when we talk with people who have already identified themselves as voting no. We inform them of the address of their polling station, remind them to turn the ballot over (in Dane County), and ask if they need a ride to the polls.
People thanks us - often profusely. A fair number of people tell us they have already voted no. Some people thank us for providing the address of their polling station. Some thank us for reminding them that the vote is this coming Tuesday.
We had so much fun yesterday we recruited two more people to help us today - my partner, and one of his work colleagues.
