    Being a registered democrat who has voted mostly for democratic candidates in every election, I am incredibly disappointed in how people encouraging voter registration for the democratic party have been behaving.

    Yesterday at the farmers market in Tracy CA, my husband was stopped by three different people for the same organization asking if he was registered to vote. As we were leaving, another man with a clip board stopped us and tried to engage my husband in a conversation about “the current political climate of the country.” We were in a bit of a rush out of there to get our cranky toddler home for a nap, but this man was extremely aggressive when my husband did not want to engage in conversation. I’ve never seen anything like that before.

    About an hour later, a fourth group of people came to our door. Because our son was sleeping, I did not answer the doorbell immediately. The group of three people on my doorstep then began to pound loudly on the door until we answered it. We were greeted with the same question we’d already been asked earlier. “Are you registered to vote?”

    Yes, we are. And yes we are registered democrats. No, we do not want to discuss politics with you on the street. No, we do not want to discuss politics with you on our doorstep. Also, we have a sign on our door asking people not to knock for sales, religious or political views. It would be lovely if you could remind the people who are out and about on the behalf of the party to be respectful. Thank you!

    1. Lisa-
      Thank you for your comments, and I am sorry you had that experience. We are in Fresno, but I will gladly forward your comments to someone in San Joaquin county if you would like me to.
