The so called "glad-handing" is the main reason that I dread voting. I don't want anyone talking to me as I "come up" to vote.
I have discussed this practice with many of my friends. None of us have ever had our mind changed by a pole worker. However, if I ever learned that my candidate was HIRING pole workers I would have to reconsider who I voted for. Candidates should have such a following that people VOLUNTEER to work the poles.
