VOICE leaders getting out the vote in Virginia

375 VOICE volunteer leaders went door-to-door to speak with residents 4 weeks before Election Day and on Election Day. The GOTV effort followed VOICE’s assembly with both gubernatorial candidates in October. The assembly was the largest assembly of the election season that had both candidates in attendance. VOICE increased the voter turnout percentage between 24% and 39% in six precincts and between 9.5% and 11% in two others. VOICE worked in a total of 8 low-voting precincts in Prince William and Fairfax Counties. Prince William is a bellwether county in state and national politics and Fairfax has the most voters of any county in Virginia. VOICE also secured a commitment from Governor-Elect Northam to meet with leaders before he is sworn into office on January 13th.

Congress resembles a UN meeting—more showplace than workplace, where assemblies and debates are ritualized reenactments and individual showmen and sound bites are more important than the larger political process. Members of Congress are unable to devote the focused attention and consistent effort that long-term social and economic challenges require.

Barack and Mitt, as I knew them (By Arnie Graf)

In one of the more famous put-downs in modern political history, during a 1988 debate, vice-presidential candidate Lloyd Bentsen told Dan Quayle, who had just compared himself to JFK, “Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy.”  That is how I feel about the two candidates for President. I don’t mean that they aren’t the equals of JFK — only that they are not the equals of their own former selves.
