3. Precinct-Level...

politics is where the 'rubber really hits the road'. On my 3 seasons porch I always keep literature on candidates and I always keep a voters registration form. Whenever the UPS man, mailman, yardman, etc come, I always hand them some literature. During the election cycle, I walk my neighborhood and pass out literature for Democratic candidates and also registration forms. I also keep a supply of forms for absentee voting and I keep a list of precincts in the WP area because the municipal polling sites are different from the general election polling sites. I try to keep abreast of all the issues here in Winter Park, the state, and the nation. This means reading 3-5 newspapers a week, watching TV and staying informed. Most of all I try to get the candidates to come to my house for coffees, wine and cheese parties, etc. and invite my neighbors.

Does this take time? Yes, but I feel that I am helping my neighbors and my community because it helps them stay informed too.
