by the roadside, he will garner 30 additional votes. For
every thousand bumper stickers placed on cars, he will
garner 10 additional votes. For every hundred personal
mailings to registered voters, he will garner 40 additional
votes, and For every radio ad heard daily in the last month
before the election, he will garner 485 additional votes.
