Oi! The first Winter storm of the season just knocked out my power for 60 hours. Catching up...
1. Did you vote in your last elections?
Of course. I've voted in every election since I was 18. I am appalled that people don't vote.
2. Do you know who your elected representatives are?
3. Have you ever contacted an elected representative? If so, what was it about?
Yes, I write letters regularly. Environmental issues are my major interest, although sometimes I just write to register my displeasure at this vote or that piece of political posturing.
4. Have you ever participated in a demonstration?
I used to. I've come to think that demonstrations are the only form of organized behavior more debased and reactionary than media coverage.
5. Have you ever volunteered in an election? What was the result?
No. I've donated to a lot of measures and some candidates, but I've never worked phones or anything like that.
