Slightly OT...

but I registered voters yesterday.

It was cool. We set up a table in the basement of the Toner Student Center (kind of a student union place) next to the bookstore and yelled at people to come get registered.

It was a lot like street canvassing, actually; some of the people would walk by with their eyes straight ahead and pretend that they didn't see us. Some would look and then chuckle on their way. Some would stop at our table and chat. Some would even get registered.

It was awesome. It felt like canvassing, but without the getting-sworn-at.

Awesome. How many people did you register?

Um... I think around 300 over the whole week. About seventy the day I helped out.
