GOTV – hate it.

I’m all for voting (civic responsibility!), but Get Out The Vote is not a slogan that makes me do it. It irritates me, in fact, because it doesn’t seem to mean anything. I feel like a word is wrong (Get Out And Vote, perhaps?) or it’s unnecessary (Vote, anyone?) or candidate’s volunteers do this anyway (get people to the polls). 

Get Out The Vote just sounds awkward, stiff, confused, and hopeless. Am I missing something here? Is there possibly a referendum about getting rid of the phrase GOTV…I vote yes!

Either way, get moving people…there’s an election on the horizon.
