Just say no

Posted By on Fri, May 16, 2008 at 7:03 AM

A Morning News article on petition canvassing at polling places prompts a couple of observations:

1) As a voter, the easiest course is to wave off anyone who approaches you at the polls. The immigrant-bashing and gay-bashing measures are undeserving. The lottery seems likely to reach the ballot regardless of what you do anyway, given signature work already done, so why make yourself a magnet for other loitering canvassers by signing anything?

2) The light election slate will make signature gathering harder than is customary.
