That's a concern on which can aslo affect calls. I joined my sister on an Obama campaign taht made called up to the last day. I think now that Obama has proven success through analytic and social media usage, there will be further adjustment in future campaigns. But I think we may be stuck with the brochures for a while. ;-)

I'm in NC - a battleground state. EVERY DAY - I kid you not - I was called by a robo-survey machine to inquire who I was voting for. Near the end I stopped answering my phone and lamented not giving AT&T their $1 a month to keep my number private.
One day I just held the phone and didn't respond to see what would happen. Here's how it went - keep in mind it's a robo-caller not a person:
After a short introduction that it's phone survey about the election - it went something like this.
Who are you most likely to vote for in upcoming election?
Press 1 for Obama
Press 2 for Romney
Press 3 undecided
I do nothing to see what will happen. 15 seconds later ...
Ok - you are going to vote for Obama. Now what is your stance on ...
What? I didn't answer and the survey defaults to choice 1? Isn't No Answer a valid survey response?

One of the things I dislike most about polling day is the gauntlet of pamphlet- and placard-wielding people trying to get out the vote for their favored candidates till the very end. Even if I was undecided, is shoving a pamphlet in my face as I'm trying to get into the polling place really the best strategy to take?
