Absentee ballots win elections
Anyway, I loved the whole mailing concept about the absentee ballot. This was a very clever thing because the absentee ballots, right or wrong, are what wins elections these days.
It would have been better if an actual absentee ballot was attached to this candidate's ad as people would vote right on the spot I'm assuming, but having the middle step of having to send away for it will probably lose votes that would have been gained by people actually voting on the spot at that time.
It's a shame that absentee voting is the way to win the election, and I think it's important for all the candidates to understand this. I know of one already who has made the old age homes rounds, you know, visiting the retirement and assisted living facilities. It doesn't sit right with me that this is done, hitting a lonely captive audience who will give you an absentee vote for a friendly smile. But this is the way it's done today. Nothing really fair or relevant about the whole thing.
This weekend, I received another candidate's ad in the mail with the absentee ballot application form attached, they obviously stole the idea from the first candidate who sent it out. But that's the way to go. Absentee.
