Turn Low Info Voters in to savy voters You know what we should do from now to the elections...
We should compile all votes taken on the hill, why the person voted that way and other actions taken and compile the information into little pamphlets for each district and state.

Hand them out to the people of the areas. Not just hand them out but engage in conversation an share the information.

Also putting together picture books with why different issues are important.

This would help inform uninformed voters.

Also a spa service or pedicure for free for engaging in conversation about different issues and voting records as well as the meaning of them to the person getting the service.


Just thinking of ways to make low info voters into savvy voters.

Share your ideas...

Also wondering if anyone would be willing to get together (online) to put some of these ideas into action.

HA, you are idealistic. It may work, but it may not.
Some of these voters like to be bought, meaning they need some return on the vote.


For some, the moral high ground may be that return, but I fear that most won't feel that way.

How about 2 conservative candidates, instead of a sugar daddy versus duty?
we only have each other. And that makes us rich.. . .

Wisdom in the man, patience in the wife, brings peace to the house and a happy life.

Well, the conversations and information would show how in the long-term one would benefit them over another, dealing with their values. Depending on their values they would then vote as they believe.

Remember many liberal voters are high income people that feel they are helping the poor by voting this way. All my stepsisters, stepmother and stepbrother are libs and are very well off as well as positioned. They seem to feel that this is their good deed, and it makes them feel better about themselves by helping the poor.

Which is why I thought of the spa services.

Lovely, don't you know the rules? They can use any manipulation including the "voting does not work", to the why call or use your voice, they don't listen anyway. But the end has to be organic. Otherwise they don't know which move worked.

The people in the 70s proved that we are heard, also our being against another action in Syria being heard and listened to worked. We are heard if we use our voice instead of feeding into the hype that we are given.

An other idea:

Like timeshare and businesses wanting to get people to buy into their business send out tickets for four to a free lunch or dinner to listen to a talk on how government works, why certain issues effect them and how. That they do matter.

No worries. hf

The important thing is not feeding into the frustration. The frustration comes from feeling helpless in a situation. Which none of us are, something like this removes the frustration because it's taking a positive action to make a difference. Just one person becoming interested and engaged is worth it. You know?

True, thanks for bringing this all up, they are important questions. Many think that way and are frustrated too.

Me too obviously, which is why I try to come up with creative and positive ways to change the situation.

Thanks! Glad to see others are interested in this.

There are so many issues, probably the stereotypes and showing the false myths, with examples that are relatable. Also like you said this administration, showing where the myths are and the truth of each. It has to be relatable to the uninformed person though.

But it would be great to cover every issue and bill. Eventually.
