In case you're wondering..|
I'm with renniekins
1) You weren't on the ballot,
2) I think
the only time people ever heard your name was the evening before the poll when we went to their house and when you were at the polling station the night before, and
3) You STILL got a huge percentage of the votes.
You got all that through word of mouth and asking people to remember to write you in. That's hard for many. Next year if you're on the ballot, I think you'll be very successful. You might even want to make a $100 investment and an evening or two and flyer the entire 5th Ward. (Who knows, maybe you'll get some non-standard voters.) I'd be up for going door-to-door again if you're interested.
All said and done, I'm glad you attemped it. Most people in the world won't ever go that far.
