It might be useful to remember that self-identified Republicans measure only about 25-28% of the electorate. So, a modest to small percentage of Republicans is a REALLY small percentage of voters.
Linda Brewster

You'd never know that from what happened in Virginia...

Re: Revolving DoorAs a result of defeats or retirements in 2010, something like 9 Democrat senators left the Senate. Only one of those returned home. The others ALL became lobbyists.

Precincts with Precinct Committee Officers going door to door raises turnout for the party by about 5%, which can be critical
Norm Conrad
01:07:23
Yet, Australia still elects reactionary and corrupt officials.
Norm Conrad
01:08:20
IMO, almost anyone can vote against their interests if they are scared. Fear is a great (terrible) motivator.

Enthusiasm, Enthusiasm, Enthusiasm - an important part of our training in Democracy for America.
Rebecca Wolfe

Mandates do not seem to be successful enthuse “liberty loving” United States. Wish that we could, but current Congress would never pass a bill like that.
Shirley Viscalla (SM-T
01:28:56
instead of a fine for not voting consider community service for a couple of hours
Rebecca Wolfe
01:29:03
oops — correction — “in these United States”
Rebecca Wolfe

Cindy, how engaged were the students?
judith langhans

I agree with Rebecca
Rebecca Wolfe

Shirley Viscalla (SM-T
01:31:45
good idea max. a park day pass or ferry fare
Rebecca Wolfe
01:31:50
How could our system reward voters? I agree with Max.
judith langhans
01:31:59
Thank you Max
Dwight rousu

Covid may have reduced in-person campaigning this election, and personal contact motivates voting
Rebecca Wolfe
01:32:21
I think there are laws against paying people to vote.
Keitha Bryson
01:32:30
Great idea Max!
Max Bauman
01:33:34
It doesn’t explicitly have to be a monetary incentive.

“the State we Are In” comes in two versions: one for 6 grade+, another for grades 3-5. It’s excellent!
Rebecca Wolfe
01:38:34
I strongly support our having a speaker’s bureau to speak to students from 8th grade through Grade 16. When I was in the classroom I often found ways to educate secondary level students understand the importance of governing and government.
Rebecca Wolfe
01:39:18

Are people invited to give short information type speeches at school board meetings? This would be a good way to get permission to talk to classes.
judith langhans

Thank you
Carol Sullivan
01:43:51
Only problem there is that most schools are not welcoming in guest presenters because of COVID.
Rebecca Wolfe
01:43:51
Kim Wyman is a true Republican. I remember when she was an outspoken opponent of Gov. Inslee. She inherited the mail-in voting system that we fought for and got in Snohomish County. She did not create that system.
Rebecca Wolfe
01:44:23
I hope that she will do a good job.
Carol Sullivan
01:44:32
I wanted to talk to my granddaughters class (6th grade), and was not allowed in!
