Do you vote in primaries? You should. I’ve been reminded this week just how many people simply don’t.
I’ve been phonebanking and, due to the weird way Virginia registers voters, the list of “likely Dem” voters comes from people who vote in Democratic primaries. (I assume it’s the same for the Republicans, but I don’t, you know, ever phone bank for them.) The phone banking program gives you a name, phone number, sex, and age of the person. To say the list skews not just “not young” but to “genuinely old” is no understatement.
Look, democracy can be a hassle and I don’t expect everyone to take politics as seriously as I do. But you have to vote.
