Got a letter from the NC Democratic Party today. It was reminder to vote with a handy voter guide to take to the polls.
So far, so good.
However, in the first paragraph, the letter kindly thanks me for voting in 2008 (I'm a registered Democrat so they assume me voting helps them), but notes that I didn't vote in 2009 or the May 2010 primary.
Knowing this to be false -- since I haven't missed voting in ANY election since I turned 18 -- I checked my record on the State Board of Elections web site just to see if bad data was out there.
Sure enough, the SBOE records indicate that I've voted in every election for the past several years -- general, primary, 2nd primary, municipal. You name it, I've voted.
So why does the NCDP think I haven't voted in 2 years?
I don't know, but I do know new management is needed at party headquarters.
Candidate recruitment was abysmal this cycle, and campaign management doesn't seem much better.
Party honchos take note. You need to make some new hires.
