The campaigns are hiding this information from the voters.
For more than 35 years, I’ve volunteered for election campaigns, calling thousands of voters. They often ask questions about registration and voting details. The campaign staff don’t have the information and won’t make any effort to give it to you.
When volunteers can’t give this information to voters because they don’t have it, we know we’re losing votes. A few elections ago, I wrote this guide. The campaigns refuse to use it. They tell me it's not the "right font", or the "right card stock". So, since the campaigns and the parties hide this information from you, here it is. Please share it widely.
