Not sure who is funding this organization, but the Center For Voter Information has been sending me mailers on a regular basis to let me know that I’m registered to vote along with a rating of my voting record. There is also a reminder to vote if I want to maintain my “rating”. Excuse me!!! With apologies to Lesley Gore, “It’s my ballot and I’ll vote if I want to, vote if I want to.”
The disclaimers let me know that my rating was determined by scraping state voter records and the information “… is provided as a service to voters like you.” Not sure what kind of service this is and neither does this book
Update: One of the mailers had a list of ratings for candidates with a skew to Democrats, indicating the service is to push Democratic candidates. Sort of like the mailers pushing Republican candidates, but with AFL-CIO and human rights instead of NRA and abortion.
Turns out it could be worse, I could have received the version of the mailer that tells me I’m not registered to vote.
