For Obama campaign, green means you’ve gone

This may be old news to campaign vets, but an Obama volunteer just doorknocked my neighborhood asking if people had voted. If they had, he turned a door hanger to its green side. If you hadn’t voted, or weren’t home, the hanger was flipped to the blue side.

Not a scarlet letter, but it does keep volunteers from wasting their energy as they get out the vote in Election Day’s waning hours.

    It is old news to us campaign vets, but thanks for writing about this for the benefit of others. It does keep volunteers from wasting their energy, but it also keeps volunteers from repeatedly annoying those who’ve already voted.
