    Interesting to see the lies these folks have been telling about it. I can testify to two of them.

    Everyone eligible to vote in our household is registered and we never got any phone calls.

    I saw what was on the outside of the envelope, and I opened it and glanced at it, then chucked it in the recycling bin, so I have no idea whether the address to return the forms was correct.

    I suspect this is actually a massive waste of money for these outfits, if they're sending this stuff to folks who are already registered and have no sympathy for their causes.

    •  For MN they have... (0+ / 0-)

      Secretary of State
      60 Empire Drive, Ste 100
      St. Paul, MN  55103-1855

      All of our registrations are handled on a local level, so it would be hard for anyone to send out a general mailer like that in WI.  They'd have to make an actual effort - which they clearly did not (unless it was to screw up).  

    •  Actually, it isn't a waste of money. For each (3+ / 0-)

      Democrat that they can get to fill out the form and send it to a bad address, who then thinks he is registered to vote, that is one less vote for Obama.

      They are pulling crap like this all over the country this year. Hoping to suppress as many votes as possible.

      rolls, so you had better check again in September. And October.
