2008 Registration Persuasion
posted by October 20 at 14:45 PMon
First, a text message I received this morning from Barack. (And hey, I would totally post text messages from McCain too—if I ever received any.)
It’s the LAST DAY to register to vote in WA! Tell friends to visit their country auditor’s office to register TODAY. Locations at WA.BarackObama.com/WAEV Fwd msg
Next, an email from a Slog tipper currently in line outside a King County Elections office:
This is the line outside and going into king county elections… people who have waited til the last minute to register to vote. this is only part of the line…
My guess is that more than a few of the people standing in line received the same text message I did. And if I’m right, it’s another sign of how much of an advantage Obama has gained by using new(ish) technology to reach less-likely voters.
