Wauconda, IL Precinct 337 Primary Election-March 20, 2012

The following is the CONTENT of my “yellow walk sheet,”  175 copies of which my wife Linda and I hung about three weeks ago (2/25/2012) on the doorknobs of the houses in the voting precinct in which we live in Wauconda, IL. (For more details about this experience, see “My Voter Information Sheet,” posted in this blog.)  I have thought several times since “the walk” about posting (on this blog) the actual content of the letter but have not done so until now.  This seemed to be the best time to do it because I couldn’t sleep tonight, 3/19/2012, for reasons other than the election tomorrow.  So I got up, looked at my newly purchased copy of “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” (by Rebecca Skloot) for a few minutes– standing in my pajamas next to the piano in our living room, then went back into my bedroom where Linda was sleeping, picked up my bedroom slippers beside my dresser, walked down the hallway to the foot of the basement stairs, then finally made my way down to the basement computer where I am now inputting this information as an introduction to my post.  So I now present to you “the letter,” the “facts as I saw them,” a “complete” guide to the Republican primary voters of Wauconda, IL precinct 337, from their about-to-be-elected Precinct Committeeman:

Be sure to pray for our country and its direction during these difficult times, and for your vote for the Republican candidate for President.  My choice is Rick Santorum, the most conservative candidate (with a life and record to back it) that we have.  In the General Election, I will vote for the Republican candidate that finally emerges.
