5:09pm:Just got back inside now. Afternoon canvass even better — most of my list had already voted. Can I tell you all how much Medford Hillside kicks ass? By and large, great energy and urgency — people know how much this one means.
Canvassing in Somerville, 490 Broadway @ 10am. Doing it as long as they need.
How about you?
Update: OK, ran out of lit with still a few houses left on my 2nd turf: Medford Hillside, as it turns out. Eating hot soup — hands are a bit numb.
Good news: The voters on my GOTV walk list whom I talked to, seemed to understand how important it was to vote today. Decent sense of urgency, I'd say.
Bad news: Brown is winning the sign war in Medford. I've barely seen any Martha signs in her home town. “Lawn signs don't vote” — but still. Ran into three Brown voters on my walk list … they shouldn't be there.
My encouragement with the “good news” portion of today's experience now slightly outweighs the “bad news.” Still … the fact that at three different Medford polling places I've seen ZERO visibility for Martha seems like quite an omission. There's been a tendency on the part of this campaign to think that the things that don't matter a lot, don't matter at all. Well, we'll deal with that in the post-mortem.
Good luck and God Speed, everyone.
