Let's Vote GOTV Contest! Midterm Early Voting Dates - $25.00 Charity Prize

Let's Vote! This is just for fun. Polls should be ignored, the key is getting out voters to the polls. Win or lose, we have to do our best in every race; while the marquee races are important, all the legislative and state seats are vital since the Census will be coming up in 2020. Governors have a huge role in that process.

So here's the idea: Let's have a contest to see who here can get the greatest number of Democratic and Independent voters out in the midterms! Let's GOTV!

It's the honor system, we all know each other... the rule is it has to be an actual vote, by mail, early voting or voting day itself.

How many people can we each be responsible for getting to the polls and voting for Democrats? Just post messages and keep track of how many you get to mail in their ballot or get to the polls. Theoretically, you can see if the person voted since it's public record, you can look up if they returned a ballot... but it's fine to just know they did and count it. Bonus points if the voter is in a red state (count it as 1.5 voters). Note: This isn't a payment for voting, it's to encourage folks to get friends and family to get out there and vote.

The winner will get a $25.00 prize for their favorite charity or to Fogbow, I'm happy to put up the stakes. Winner announced November 7th. Hope this is a fun way to help take back the country.

LET'S GET VOTING! :thumbs:

I did manage to get a couple of under 30's who had never voted before to register here in Indiana. I told the one young lady that if she didn't follow through and vote I would roll her in snow the first snowfall after election day.

My son and I had a long talk with both of them about who to vote for and I told them that this year just vote a straight democratic ticket for best results.

Now just to make sure they follow through. :flag:

That's awesome Clairez! Here in Broward County, David Hogg and the Parkland kids have been stealthily registering voters and getting young people to commit. If we can just get that block to get out and vote it will swamp the boomers (generally boomers are double the number of young voters). Let's get this done!
