An idea to raise the young vote for Sanders.

Here's an idea that might raise Bernies numbers and be fun for college students.

What if college students in Super Tuesday states challenged other college students in their states to see who get out the biggest vote.
E.G. University of Oklahoma students would go on social media challenging Tulsa and Oklahoma State to see who can most Feel the Bern.
HBCU's could also do this like Spelman and Morehouse in Georgia.

They would just set up a tally system with pledges to vote from each school on certain social media sites.
Then, on Tuesday, have another tally for students to say that they just voted for Bernie.

Do this in all 11 Super Tuesday states with their respective colleges.
You could even have prizes of some sort for the winning schools, even if they were only virtual prizes.
What do you think college student Berners?

1. Sounds great

 

You should send this to Bernie's team. Can't hurt, or just twitter a challenge to other schools. Their prize will be free community colleges. If not for them, their other family members or friends.

2. I'm embarrassed to say I'm not on social media.

If you'd like, you are quite welcome to copy and paste the idea and send it wherever you think it might be used. Thank you.

3. I'm not a social butterfly either but

 

I'll check it out and see if this can be sent as an idea. The schools should really promote things like this. Not tell anyone how to vote, but make those that don't vote seem to be the odd one out.
