After winning the "Democracy Cup" for the highest voter turnout in 2016, we were disappointed when we lost it in 2018 (the cup is awarded after even-year elections). I've been thinking since then what else we can do that is low cost but would spur additional interest. Modeling it after the Democracy Cup, I proposed the Greenwich Turnout Trophy, for the highest turnout in a district. After issuing a series of press announcements, I was featured in Greenwich Time as well as on WGCH highlighting the build-up of what I'm calling the "muscle memory" of voting on an annual basis.
