How to win an election:
1. Be low key so your opponents don’t know what you are doing.
2. Line up petitions in a frequently visited place, such as the Memorial Union, for each of the dorms so that students can go down the line signing each petition requesting satellite voting in each dorm. (It only takes 100 signatures to force a satellite, which costs the county hundreds of dollars for each satellite.)
3. Arrange students to hand out fliers at the door to the polling places, asking students to vote today. Check yes for 19-plus bars, check no for 21-plus bars.
4. Assign students for each poling place to ask each student as they enter or leave if they have voted.
These are the get-out-the-vote tactics of the people who have forced this item to be on the city election ballot. To see how many students have voted by dorm and where the early voting satellites are, check the Johnson County website under auditor.
If you want the bars to continue to allow only 21 year olds to stay after 10 p.m., please vote no Tuesday.
