Does the process of Getting Out The Vote require that you, you know, actually get out once in a while? I’m one of those weird people who thinks it does.

    I had one candidate visit for our recent(-ish) primary — a school board candidate whose husband spent two terms in the state House when lived in his district. I don’t think she won.

    We knew them previously from church and from my two years as a paying member of the county GOP, but I don’t think she remembered me. Of course we voted for her, as we had for him.

    NY Dems are much more like your Reps, Chaz.
    My neighborhood is probably the last and only bastion of Republican-voters in NYC, and that’s changing – what’s with rapidly-growing Arab Muslim percentage in population. Local politicians when they want to self-advertize do not knock on doors but stand next to subway stations entrances and hand out their printed flyers.
    Several times when I encountered that in the past years the politico asked me first am I a registered Democrat – and when I said “no” (or “noway. Aren’t you done enough damage? die, buster, dye already!” – OK, just kidding) he wouldn’t give me his printed propaganda. Wise you frugal, our Yankee Dems.

    I got called by an electronic pollster re a local judge primary race in September. I HATE those things. Still, it did inform me about that race, about which I knew nothing before.
