Gallery: Candidates Greet Voters in Crunch Time

Morrison, Friedman, Schneider and Dold use different techniques to directly communicate message.

With the Nov. 6 general election nine days away and early voting into its second week, candidates for the United States Congress and the Illinois State Senate spent the weekend meeting voters and encouraging people to cast ballots.

Rep. Robert Dold (R-Kenilworth) spent much of the weekend on a bus tour of the 10th Congressional District visiting restaurants, shopping centers and other places where people congregate while his Democratic challenger, Deerfield’s Brad Schneider, motivating people at rallies to vote early.

“Too much is at stake in this election for anyone to stay on the sidelines, and with so many opportunities for early voting, it's never been simpler for Illinois residents to cast their ballots early” Schneider said.

Dold put his emphasis on voter contact. “We’re talking to people about the issues and concerns they have in the crunch of the last 10 days,” he said.

Dold was joined at several stops of his bus tour Sunday by Highland Park pediatrician Arie Friedman. Friedman is the Republican candidate hoping to succeed retiring state Sen. Susan Garrett (D-Lake Forest).

Friedman’s Democratic opponent, West Deerfield Township Supervisor Julie Morrison, was on a Julie tour with Schneider’s wife, Julie Dann. The two of them first took a group of people to vote early in Highland Park with Dann before heading to Deerfield for another rally where Morrison cast her ballot. .

Dold tell your kid not to work for someone like you. Your employees at Rose Pest beg you...don't let your kid work for someone like you. You are a disgrace and just because no one knows you like your employees doesn't mean you are a good man. Shame on you Dold. I hope you end up in prison.

We’re not quite at that http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org stage yet. But we may be on the right path. For http://www.coachoutletod.com perhaps the greatest geek triumph of the 2012 presidential http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net elections was the unlikely figure of statistician Nate Silver, http://www.coachoutletpn.com whose FiveThirtyEight blog – which algorithmically assessed http://www.coachfactorystoredo.com hundreds of polls based on their historical accuracy – http://www.coachoutletos.org managed to successfully predict the result in 50 out http://www.coachoutletstorefb.com of 50 states.His analysis – like every political story – divides http://www.coachoutletstoreonlinert.com opinion. To my mind, though, his work shines a light on a bigger story about our future relationship http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net with technology, and in particular on a vision of progress http://www.coachoutletonlinelon.com where there’s an increasingly clear divide between those http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com endeavours that can safely be left to humans, and those where http://www.coachoutletdt.net machines and mathematics are preferable.It’s something that http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net is already happening.
