Don’t Vote, Part II

In Don’t Vote, I wrote about how you could multiply your voting power by not just voting, but campaigning to get others to vote — and that thanks to modern technology, it’s now cheaper and safer than ever to campaign.

Scott Adams, a better writer (debateable) and a bigger asshole (certain) than me, points out that the reverse is also true: You can also convince people to not vote. Ten extra votes for your candidate of choice and ten missing votes for the opposition are about the same currency.

(PS: if you’ve somehow registered to vote but are as of yet undecided on whether you’re actually going to do it or who you’re going to do it for, please vote for hillary, the election is still closer than it seems, and your vote matters. thanks)
