[21:30] <jokeefe> The more people you can talk to and can remind to vote for you the week before election day, the better [21:31] <Lulu> Your results will be a matter of public record [21:31] <Lulu> It will reflect on the whole party. [21:31] <Lulu> We have to try at least [21:32] <jokeefe> Better to have identified 100 people who support you and you can come back to next year than to get 1000 votes from unknown people.
