Tactical Voting Question

I vote by mail, and am “decline to state,” so I recently received a request from the county elections office if I wanted to specify a political party ballot for the upcoming primary.  With no real race for the Democratic nomination for governor, and with an incumbent senator, I was considering asking for the Republican ballot to vote for the most beatable candidates.

I’ll admit I’ve not voted for a Republican at any level since I voted for Millicent Fenwick in 1980…  So it would be a strange feeling.

Have any of you voted tactically like this?  Are any of you considering it for this primary?

Progress Report From CA Draft Gore Ballot Campaign

Dear California… a report from the Draft Movement and their CA Primary Ballot Campaign

We are in the halfway mark of the ballot effort. It’s been real interesting meeting people, listening to their comments and learning how to work the political system from the grassroots levels. I recommend it to everyone to get involved with this effort as it will open your eyes to what is really been felt and said by us regular Americans.

Right now in my area I am pushing for voter registration along with our nomination papers. You can’t believe how many people don’t know their address has to be updated every time they move, some people don’t even know what party they are. So we working on correcting these problems.

I wish this experience could go on a long time, but alas, we must stop Dec. 4.

We are looking for volunteers, money and properly registered CA Democrats with a little moxy, imagination and political will. Are YOU one?


The Draft Gore Movement Is Setting A Standard. We believe our “candidate” represents the level to which all other political aspirants should aspire to, including our current crop of presidential candidates.

And guess what? So does a lot of mainstream America.

I have Green Party members becoming Democrats so they can sign the nomination papers.
So many people ask me “Oh we really wish Al would run.” Less and less are saying no thanks. Get the picture? 

Like the song says… “I need to wake up”

Every vote counts!!!

Take Care California…Until next time…
