POLITICAL GRAVITY
 
We are very excited to announce that MOPP was recently granted access to a phenomenal new database tool, “Voter Gravity” for use duringthis election season…and beyond…as we work to grow our impact/influence on the precinct level. Gravity is a powerful tool that allows us tocreate a reliable voter database for “Get Out the CONSERVATIVE Vote/GOTCV” efforts. More details are available later in this publication.We are actively seeking volunteers to help make phone calls and/or do door to door canvassing/lit drops in order to GOTCV on November 6

TRUE THE VOTE UPDATE
You may recall that MOPP is working with True the Vote to ensure integrity of the election process. In St. Louis County, MOPP is recruiting“poll challengers” to be present at specific polls where questionable individuals have been identified that are registered in more than onelocation. We would like to point these individuals out to the Poll Supervisors. If you would like to volunteer to be a “poll challenger”, pleasecontact us at 314-717-1411 or email us atmissouriprecinctproject@gmail.com.
 
POLL WORKERS STILL NEEDED IN ST. LOUIS COUNTY
SPECIAL NOTE: The St. Louis County Election Board is still in need of poll workers. If you would like to volunteer for this most importantrole in the election process, contacthttp://www.stlouisco.com/YourGovernment/Elections/PollWorkers or call 314-615-1804
.
If you live In
 
another county that has all of it’s poll worker positions filled, and you would like to volunteer in St. Louis County you can do so by gettingpermission from you local election board/county clerk’s office. FYI..You will need to declare a party affiliation to be a poll worker.…historically Democrats usually have enough poll workers, but Republicans fall short in which case they can assign Democrats to fillRepublican poll worker positions for the day.
MISSOURIANS FOR A CONSERVATIVE SENATE
MOPP has joined with a number of other grassroots groups and individuals to form a coalition called “Missourians for a ConservativeSenate”. The goal of the group is to “Defeat McCaskill” and hopefully be another “cog in the wheel” to retire Harry Reid as Senate MajorityLeader. Many activities, events and get out the vote efforts are being coordinated statewide in order to accomplish these goals. More detailslater in this issue.

THE MOPP PHILOSOPHY v. ENDORSEMENTS
In this issue you will find MOPP endorsements for various candidates and issues. Please note that these are merely recommendations andwe urge ALL readers/subscribers/members NOT to base your decisions on one source’s “opinions”. It is imperative that you DO YOUR OWNHOMEWORK!MOPP is committed to working within the framework of the 2 party system that exists currently, especially in this election cycle, when a thirdparty candidate could diminish our chances for victory. We are frankly not happy with either party, but of the 2, we feel the one that comesclosest to being “salvageable” is the Republican Party. Therefore, at this juncture, we are dedicated to utilizing the precinct strategy to workwithin the Republican Party, from the ground up, to make it more reflective of grassroots conservative principles and values...we believe weneed to BE the party!. For this reason, our endorsements lean heavily toward the Republican ticket; however, we are pleased to note thatquite a few of those running on the Republican ticket, and whom we are endorsing, have come out of the “grassroots movement”, so we aremaking positive strides and this is a step in the right direction. Remember…we did not get here overnight…it will take time to turn the time!Per Frieda Keough/MOPP St. Louis County Coordinator: A separate memo will go out shortly to our contacts with recommendationsregarding judgeship and ballot issues specific to St. Louis County.
ST. LOUIS COUNTY APPOINTS A NEW ELECTIONS DIRECTOR
State Rep. Gary Fuhr, R-South County was recently appointed as the new Republican elections director. Fuhr replaces former Republicanelections director Joe Goeke. His appointment was approved by a vote of the four election commissioners, Dick Kellet, who is the chairman,and Julie Jones, Ann Pluemer and John Siscel.By law, the election board must have a Democratic and Republican member in place for general elections. The election board's Democraticjudge is Rita Heard Days. Fuhr has said, "My goal will be to work for the citizens of the county to continue to develop credibility in theelection process." Fuhr spoke at the October St. Louis County Central Committee meeting where he spoke about the requirements for theelection. The committee people present asked him lots of questions and to a (wo)man they were impressed by his knowledge about theprocess and rules. (h/t Frieda Keough)
 
LETTER WRITING CAMPAIGN
Below you will find an email from Jim Holland to encourage folks across the State to participate in a "letters to the editor" campaign...it is a "cheap", effective wayto spread the word...
(Jim serves as MOPP County Coordinator for Callaway County) 
 
Greetings,My initial goal of writing a different letter to the editor each day until election has been derailed by . . . just stuff, distractions, family duties,bad cold, and an over-load of topics to write about. There is just so much garbage being dumped on us each day, it's getting hard to keep up. You don't suppose that old age has anything to do with it, do you? I have posted a new crop of letters on thePatriots Dream Team web site...http://patriotsdreamteam.com/conservatives-wanted/letters-to-the- 
 
editor/ . Just scan the list, pick one and cut and paste away,It's my hope that people around the state will feel free to take these letters and make them their own. Re-write them to suit their style or just put their name on it and post it in their local paper. It is my intent to write a letter each day that echos the message coming from the Akin campaign or is relevant to current events.We must work to educate our neighbors on the dangers of one more term for Claire McCaskill. Even if Romney is elected, he can only effect a delaying action as long as the "Demonrats" control the Senate.Letters to the editor is a very efficient and cost effective method of spreading the word and influencing our neighbors. If you know anyone who might help with letters to the editor, Thanks in advance.
 
Pick a letter, any letter and start posting. Set a few "brush fires in the minds of your fellows" in your corner of the state. Note: Guidelines for letters to the Editor can be found under Resources. And please feel free to forward to your likely "suspects" list.
