    I wish the form asked for mobile phone numbers so that supporters could be woken up on the morning of the poll. That would have made the difference between 2nd and 1st last year.

    There was a special forum created so this stuff wouldn't show up so easily in google, our last thread came up high on a google search of srlc 2011

    Do we know when the straw poll is? If I can only come up on Friday and Saturday, can I still vote? Not sure if I can take the time off of work to get there on Thursday.

    Crap, I thought this was in the SRLC sub-forum. I vote to move it there immediately.

    You can always post another thread in General Politics that links to this one without announcing free tickets to the whole world.

    last year, the straw poll ended around lunch on saturday.
    originally people were told voting was until 5pm, so several people missed the vote.
    vote as soon as you get there.

    I haven't seen SRLC mentioned on any other forums yet. Seems like there is so much other stuff brewing up that it's catching people by surprise this year.

    I understand the straw poll is Thursday AND Friday, and Ron is speaking Friday, but I don't know what time voting stops Friday. That is scuttlebutt, however. I did send them an email, but they didn't get back to me, yet, in any event.

    It wasn't going to have a straw poll until last week but they didn't get enough people, I think. They do not give student discounts, wonder why?

    My girlfriend and I would like to come but we wouldn't arrive until late friday night. If we knew for sure we could still vote in the straw poll Saturday morning we would come.

    Alternatively I could come without her for the full trip but I'm kind of hesitant about travelling by myself. Anyone have any more info?

    You might want to come by yourself. Go to the SRLC subforum for more info. I THINK Ron is speaking about 2 pm Friday. I understand the straw poll is open Friday, but I don't know how late. They never got back to my email. I'll try them again.

    Go to the SRLC subforum the planning should be there. I am going to take 'free tickets' out of the heading because it is showing up in google, and that is the precise thing we don't want to make a big deal of, because we are already viewed as 'paying' for people to go, which isn't true, but the tickets fit into the meme, even though they aren't from the campaign.

    I want to go, but finals and graduation are going to prevent that from happening.

    But anyway, bump bump bump! We need the same amount of support we had at CPAC to be at SRLC.

    Ron makes a good speech, he wins the poll, he grabs headlines, and we got another week with the last name "Paul" at the forefront of American politics.

    Ron is speaking Friday early afternoon, I believe.

    Without any details from the SRLC about the straw poll yet, it's hard to say, but going by last year's, which was on Friday/Saturday/Sunday instead of Thrusday/Friday/Saturday, getting there after 11am on Friday (which corresponds to 11am Saturday last year) is really pushing your luck. While straw poll voting continued right up until about 4:30pm Saturday, you had to have checked in before 1pm on Saturday in order to vote. So I'd assume you need to check in by 1pm or earlier on Friday this year.

    Thanks for the reply, I live like 45 mins from New Orleans so If I need to check in by 1, I may be able to make it. But if i have to miss work I will since Friday is not an important day usually at work( we work 9 hrs monday-thursday so we can get off friday early[4 hrs]). I'm hoping the straw poll is on Saturday this year, but if Ron is speaking Friday then better for poll to be then.

    I registered yesterday for tickets, we will be driving in on Thursday night from College Station, so hopefully we won't miss too much. Where is this SLRC forum? I don't see it anywhere.
