Today in Somerville,
- There are still some other papers here for Bonifaz that haven't been picked up.
Oh, who turned them in?
Hold on, let me look...
Patrick Keaney... Oh, I know him
... and Lesley Phillips. I know her too. I'll mention it to them.
- *blink* Carolyn Croissant isn't registered???
Not at that address, she isn't
[It's definitely the right address] This is the right address, and I know she voted.
What's the address again? [I read it to them]
We have her at [other address] Yeah, that's where she used to live. She moved last year.
[Briefly, I consider whether she might not have updated her registration, but then I remember a conversation in which we lamented that she couldn't vote for Rebekah Gewirtz because she'd moved from ward 6 to ward 7]
Yeah, we show she moved, from [new street] to [old street]
No, you have it backwards. She moved from [old street] to [new street]. I helped her move!
Huh... we show her changed to [old street]... in April. Maybe it's from the city census.
[She asks another elections employee to look up some papers]
Yes, here it is, the change is from the city census. Maybe we misread it.
Maybe it got sent with her old address pre-printed, and forwarded in the mail, and you saw the printed address?
Yes, I bet that's it. We'll look for her registration card and fix it.
P.S. ablock, your signature didn't get certified because the way you write a "9" looks like a "7" and they looked for your name at the wrong address :)
