Organize so that every Republican can be brought to the polls. County committees should divide their counties into small districts and appoint in each a subcommittee whose duty it shall be: (1) to make a perfect list of all the voters in their district, and to ascertain with certainty for whom they will vote, (2) to keep a constant watch on the doubtful voters, and from time to time have them talked to by those in whom they have the most confidence, and also to place in their hands such documents as will enlighten and influence them, and (3) on election days to see that every Republican is brought to the polls.
