Fish Out of Water

Musings and observations about life from an East Coast native now living on the Left Coast in the California State Capitol since 2004. This fish has made her home in Madison, WI (7 years); Portland, OR (2 years); Las Vegas, NV (7 months); Middlebury, VT (3 summers); Marne-la-Vallee, a small town east of Paris, France (6 months); Middletown, CT (3 years); and Marshfield, MA, the fish's coastal hometown 40 miles south of Boston (17 years).

Location: Sacramento, California, United States


Day 215: Junk Mail (election edition)

Next week is the general election (Nov. 4).  Both Mr. E and I are permanent "absentee ballot" voters, so we've already submitted our ballots a couple of weeks ago.  In theory, this means that our names should be removed from the voter rolls and from the address lists that candidates and other groups can access for their communications, but this never seems to happen.

Case in point: Yesterday, we received 11 pieces of mail, 10 of which (i.e. 91%) were related to the election, and several of which were for the same candidate(s). What a waste of paper and ink and resources...!
