How can we get people to vote? We know from the few caucuses and primaries that Republican voters are showing up in record numbers. The Democrats have record low turnouts. I know about phone banks. Each party and each candidate has zillions of people out making phone calls.This does not seem to be working for the Democrats. What can we do?

Prevail upon businesses to give coupons to voters for dollars off meals or services.

Have a lottery with nice prizes. Show up and vote and your name goes in the lottery.

Free pizza.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

When I took a college level U.S. government class in the mid 1980’s. my mother had satellite TV. This was a dish that sat on her lawn and pointed at the sky. She had hundreds of channels at her fingertips, but being interested in current events, she watched CV-Span. She watched the House of Representatives all day long.

After a day in the classroom, I called my mom and asked what was happening in the House. She said someone called Tip O’Neill, then Speaker of the House, a bad name.

I admire Hillary Clinton. She wears high heels, not real high heels, but heels. I also admire that her outfits look comfortable. Mrs. Sanders also wears clothes that look comfortable, and I admire her look too.

Carly Fiorina’s dresses didn’t impress me. You couldn’t give me any of the dresses she wore in the debates. And her heels were too high. I’d be screaming in pain if I had to wear those shoes.

Donald Trump’s looks like a cover girl on “Cosmopolitan.” I can’t imagine her as first lady.

Michelle Obama always looks great. Her clothes don’t look as comfortable as those warm by Hillary Clinton and Jane Sanders, but Michelle can carry off the look. Michelle Obama is one of the few women who can look like a business professional and a super model at the same time.

I’m several years older than Michelle, so I need a fashion role model more like Hillary Clinton or Jane Sanders.

When I see a picture of candidates from debates, I can quickly figure out which debate by what Hillary and Carly wore. I don’t remember what the male candidates wear.

Sarah Palin would make a great Barbie Doll
