Volunteers at polling places are worth their weight in gold and can have HUGE impacts on down ballot races such as the massive property tax of Central Health Prop One. Call me at[masked] if you want to help on Tuesday at a major polling place. - Robert 

How to campaign at the polls on Tuesday, November 6th against "Central Health" Proposition 1: Hold up a sign and be vocal! Focus on big precincts.

VOLUNTEERS AT POLLS HAVE HUGE IMPACT:

 

 The first thing you need to know is that a motivated and vocal volunteer campaigning at the polling location against Prop. 1 WILL have a massive impact on the numbers at that precinct on election day. You can literally see it in the precinct results for that precinct vs. the early voting totals: a motivated volunteer can rock the down ballot. The reason for this is the long ballot and the fact that most voters are focused on the Obama/Romney/Gary Johnson race. Voters can be highly influenced on the down ballot races by volunteers.

 People hate these outrageous property taxes and it is easy to get them to vote against one. Here is the smartest way to generate the most votes against Prop 1:

 

1) PICK LARGE PRECINCTS: Campaign at one of our target precincts which have been selected to have the largest amount of voters and who are the most anti-tax friendly. You will have more impact at big, busy precincts where more voters can be exposed to you.

 

2) HOLD A YARD SIGN AND "YELL:" The best way to campaign is to hold a yard sign while yelling at the voters to vote NO on Prop 1 "It is a massive property tax increase for a billion dollar Med School boondoggle that may or may not ever be built!!" Stand 101 feet away from the entrance door of the precinct, bring a chair to sit in, and yell (in a friendly way) all day. You will not have physical access to most voters because they will park within 100 feet and you can not campaign there. Hence the importance of "yelling."

 

3) BRING A CHAIR TO SIT ON: Bring a chair to sit in. Dress appropriately. If it is a cold day bring a warm jacket. Bring food, water, soft drinks and food. Basically, you are "camping out" at the precinct and you need to make yourself comfortable for many hours of campaigning.

 

4) CAMPAIGN EARLY IN DAY: The best time to campaign is early in the morning. Be sure to be at the elementary schools from 7-8AM for the early morning drop off and from 2-3PM for the afternoon pick up. Also, there is a lunchtime rush at some precincts. When it comes to voting, the early bird gets the worm! Campaigning early in the day is far more effective than later. Often you can remind wives to call their husbands (or adult children) at work to go vote.

 

5) RECRUIT MORE VOLUNTEERS. I have a list of the top precincts where we need coverage. Recruit and send volunteers to me and I will deploy them to our target precincts where they will have the most impact. More volunteers will magnify your/our impact!

 

6) HERE ARE OUR TARGET PRECINCTS:

 

Target precincts where we need volunteer coverage on election day. The focus is on the large Republican precincts and especially elementary schools. And also on the precincts such as Lago Vista, Lakewood & Canyon Creek that tend to vote more on election day.
