October 19, 2011: 104,584. That’s the number of ballots received as of October 18 by the Election Supervisor. That is 7.8% of all eligible Teamsters.
And that’s typical. In the 2006 election for Teamster President, two out of three votes were returned after the first week.
Sure, some ballots are in the mail and on their way. But hundreds of thousands of ballots are still sitting on kitchen tables. (A detailed chart listing returns by region is available here).
That means we still have work to do—passing out leaflets, making calls, sending texts, and reminding Teamsters to vote.
And it means Sandy Pope can win this election—by turning out our votes now, and keeping at it, long after the Hoffa campaigners have stopped.
