Thread: Just voted. Turnout very low.

  1. #1

    Default Just voted. Turnout very low.

    I voted about 2 hours ago, and the place was dead. One lady was just leaving when I got there, other than her my wife and I were the only voters. According to the paper I had to sign, I was voter 152 for the day. It's snowing now, so I can't see it picking up at all.

    I learned that it is apparently illegal to wear a Ron Paul shirt into a voting place. One of the workers there made me turn my shirt inside out before I would be allowed to vote.

    I just hope there are no RP supporters that stay home because of the weather. The notoriously non voting 18-25 range, I wonder just how many of them have voted in the caucasus/primaries so far.

    I just voted around 4:00 pm. I signed in as voter 114 in my precinct. Nobody was there... lots of Ron Paul signs tho.

    This sign needs to be posted everywhere in the country that there is a street named Constitution Avenue, Street, Blvd, Road, etc.

    I just notified some of my groups about that and included a copy of your picture. Everybody should tell their meetup group, yahoo group, offline groups, etc about this. This would pick us up probably 7% more voters in those precints. Easy work people with a big return for Dr. Paul.

    The word Constitution is in their mind all the time so a sign about their street and hearing more people talk about the Constitution tends to make people listen in when you are in public talking about it. You don't have to even talk directly to them, just talk with a friend about it where people can overhear you. They hear someone talking about a street in their neighborhood they listen in because everybody likes to know what is going on in their neighborhood.

    My husband just voted at 5. He was only like number 60 in our precinct of almost 1000 registered voters.

    I speculate that it will hurt the other candidates much more than Ron Paul though.

    We're a passionate, dedicated bunch

    Default low turnout means bring a friend

    Low turnout means that EVERY vote you beg to come to the
    polls counts.

    If turnout is very low, what does it matter if "machines are breaking", you could do it by headcount.

    I'm suspecting RP either did better than expected, or some other candidates did worse, because its too early to talk about machine breakdown.

    Remember that age group using their Christmas Vacation to pound the pavement for Dr. Paul?

    It's only wet outside here - the weather should not have been a factor AT ALL. At least not here in the Upstate.

    I am right across the street from a voting place and the most traffic has come in the last few hours. It's now 5:55 - only about an hour left.
