21. Aloha, Cha!

I'm hoping today is a good day! My feet are still swollen from canvassing this weekend for Beto. There were so many of us out there doing GOTV we kept crashing the map app! The server couldn't handle the load of so many of us! Let's hope we made a difference!

5. I agree

 

Ultimately though, someone will always find a way to get a sign or flyer near the place. I find it insulting. Like "Ooooh there's a Cruz sign I'll vote for him now."

6. Thing is, it works for low-information voters.

They go to their polling place, think "Well I don't know anything about Candidate A or Candidate B, but I've seen Candidate A's name everywhere, so he must be good!"

You'd be stunned how many people do that.

7. I wouldn't be stunned.

I hear people say that all the time. We really do have a lot of ignorant people out there - the kind of people who are too ignorant to know they're ignorant.

Name recognition. Both dumb as a stump.

12. Signs are allowed outside electioneering zone

In Texas, signs are allowed beyond 100 feet from the door of the polling places. We have a ton of signs at locations

19. The rule in Texas is 100 feet from the entry door.

Likely there's plenty of space on the property that is outside of 100 feet.

Sec. 61.003. ELECTIONEERING AND LOITERING NEAR POLLING PLACE. (a) A person commits an offense if, during the voting period and within 100 feet of an outside door through which a voter may enter the building in which a polling place is located, the person:

(1) loiters; or

(2) electioneers for or against any candidate, measure, or political party.

(a-1) The entity that owns or controls a public building being used as a polling place may not, at any time during the voting period, prohibit electioneering on the building's premises outside of the area described in Subsection (a), but may enact reasonable regulations concerning the time, place, and manner of electioneering.

(b) In this section:

(1) "Electioneering" includes the posting, use, or distribution of political signs or literature. The term does not include the distribution of a notice of a party convention authorized under Section 172.1114.

Polling stations on Election Day.

Just sayin'

Any one whose vote will be influenced by signs is a damed fool.

14. Yard signs may not matter MUCH , but not having any at the polling place does...

Yard signs matter when there's a lot of them, IMO. People tend to want to vote for the winning guy, unless of course that's out of the question.

So if someone is on the fence, it could make a difference when he sees a lot of Cruz signs but no Beto signs, when he walks in to vote.

Did you call the local Democratic Party or Beto's campaign office? So they can get some signs up for tomorrow?

20. Assholes!

Repub party slogan should be, "The ends always justify the means."

Hope the local dems can replace the signs in the morning.

23. It's what Republicans do

If they thought they could get away with beating people senseless for voting Democratic and burning their ballots, they would do it.

24. Call the local Beto campaign HQ/Pop Up

They're all over the state. Go here:

https://map.betofortexas.com/?eventType=blockwalk%2Cpopupoffice

Type in the zip code and the closest HQs and Pop up offices with be listed on the right. From there, click on the nearest one and there's usually a contact phone number displayed.
