View Full Version : Strategy to get out massive votes.

It is simple, we help people votes. Ohio is one State where absentee ballots can be submitted for any reason and we can use this to our advantage
We can go door-to-door and inform people of Dr. Paul and ask people if they would be willing to vote for him if we help them vote. We can do this for people who would normally never vote. We take voter registration forms while we canvas and get people to register. Mark all those people on a map and revisit them and have them fill out absentee ballots.

The California Ron Paul supporters are trying an interesting tactic. Each congressional district in CA has a fixed number of delegates, regardless of how many Republicans are actually in that district. Thus if you convince 100 voters in a district with very few voting Republicans then it may tip the district in Paul's favor for the same number of delegates as a district where he would maybe need to convince 10,000 voters to tip the scales. Also, he does tend to appeal to independent voters, so they not only need to convince fewer voters, they will probably also have higher rates of return in districts that are not overly partisan.
Ohio has the same setup: 3 delegates per congressional district. Perhaps we can apply CA's tactics. To be honest, I don't see Paul carrying Ohio. We tend to elect some of the worst big-government Republicans (Rinos) in the country: Taft, DeWine, etc. Heck, Ted Strickland is way more conservative than Taft was! So I don't think it's worth focusing resources on the at-large delegates when we could be able to drum up several district delegates. CD 10 and 11 are very anti-war, for example, so those may be areas to campaign hard in. Though it's also Kucinich's home turf, unfortunately, which may take away the anti-war vote. If you can get colleges students out to vote then that may also be a good tactic. I recall at Miami U. in Oxford, OH the local school board got a property tax hike levy passed. In prior years they campaigned to the actual permanent land-owning residents of the city and it repeatedly failed. The year it passed they campaigning to the college students on campus and that tipped the scales. Paul is very popular with the young!

I live in canton, Ohio in stark county and let me tell you. I've seen 2 hillary bumper stickers, 1 huckabee bumper sticker, 1 obama sticker, 2 Ron Paul bumper stickers, and I've lost count of the Ron Paul yard signs I've seen. Probably between 75 and 100. Not much, but I've never seen a sign for another candidate. Our people are out here and working hard.

I've seen about 10 yard signs for Ron plus a few bumber stickers (I'm in Warren County BTW). I've seen 2 or 3 bumper stickers for Fred Thompson (that seemed to be a lucky find lol). I haven't seen ANY other bumper stickers or signs.
