Conduct your own exit poles ANYWHERE!

I have been mulling over the idea of doing my part for the REPUBLIC and being a poll watcher.  Being a Libertarian, I’m not aligned with any recognized group and don’t have the connections anyways.  Legalities to not proscribe talking at some distance from the poll.  And it is lawful (1st Amendent) to question voters on their way out.  They can answer or not and they have ALREADY voted – so a charge of voter intimidation or harassment is impossible.

Consider, however, the historical intimidation that can be felt in polling places, if not outright riots.  I concluded that there was no way I would do this at polling location.  Still exit poles are VITAL to verifying that votes have been reliably counted and the result is legitimate.  Further, it is demonstration of our respect for fairness and Democratic Principles, to reaffirm the popular vote.

Must do poll.  Can’t be at polling station.  Humm?  How about: conduct poles ANYWHERE?!  And EVERYWHERE!

Here’s the concept:  Set up a bit of signage a block or so ahead of a location where you have a video camera pointed at the street.  Get a Trump yard sign and put the words “Flash For” Trump on it.  Get a Hillary sign a put the words “Honk For” Hillary on it.  Sit back in a lawn chair with an appropriate libation and record the proceedings without undue imposition on your or anyone else’s life.  

You will be capturing opinion of the early voters as well as recent ones.  Maybe have another sign that says “One flash or honk per voter in car please.”  Do not wear campaign regalia or try to influence the outcome.   Be as neutral as possible.  Because you want to know the real story.  Post the results online later.  

Remember – if the official results in your area are opposite what you record in your neighborhood, casual poll – we are likely at war.
