Get your lawn signs up

Fun article in the Globe on the social aspects of putting up a lawn sign during a federal election, what people's thought processes are, some reactions there.

One of my lines at the door to close the deal, depending on the person and the dynamic, is that "signs are fun" (among other secret lines that shall not be disclosed here). It has surprisingly worked. People do want to be part of things, especially if they see their neighbours all getting them.

Anyway, the election is not all sturm und drang and ho-hum it's so unnecessary and all that. Nice to see that piece on this social aspect of the election today.
