GAME ON!

Yesterday the mail brought absentee ballots for Susie and me from the Chatham County Board of elections. Today we shall fill them out (I have a few questions about down ballot races which are not clearly a Democrat against a Republican) and then we shall send them back. North Carolina has a system for tracking one's ballot online so I can tell when it arrives and is recorded. Well, that is two. Now we just have another 150 million or so to go. I signed up to do a little low energy campaigning – going door to door putting door hanger messages on door knobs, no personal interactions. Chatham County is solidly, although not overwhelmingly, Democratic so the more votes we can get out here the better it will be in the state races.

"I have a few questions about down ballot races which are not clearly a Democrat against a Republican."

I hope you're not suggesting that you need to vote for a Democrat. Maybe there are only Democrats and Republicans, both open and hidden, in your part of the world. But maybe there are candidates out there who are neither? And maybe some of them are better on a whole range of issues than the Democrats?

Please clear up the ambiguity and set my mind at ease.

Getting past the big races -- pres, gov, senator -- there only a handful at the very end of a two page ballot that are not Dem Rep, and there [Board of Education, Chatham County] I am guided by local progressives. This is a pretty sleepy place.

Professor Wolff, my wife has been text-banking in your state. It's like phone-banking, only one sends text-messages instead and waits for a reply to respond to. It's slow-going. She's volunteering for an organization that targets unregistered voters. Interestingly enough, many of the Trump voters she hears from are among the unregistered.
