Summary
Explores the crucial role of strategy in the two-stage electoral campaign system; the opportunities for citizens to choose, organize, and elect candidates who will pursue policies they favor and the need for campaigns to increase voter turnout by educating citizens about the importance and influence of their vote. Examples include campaign initiatives to elect Kennedy in spite of the fact that he was a Catholic; grassroots political activism in Montgomery County, Maryland, and the 1990's campaign by rock musicians to enourage young people to vote and sway opinions on music censorship issues.
