Tomorrow is the primary election here in NYC and there are tight races in both major parties. All weekend, our phone has been ringing off the hook.
We know they're political calls and don't answer but it's still annoying.
I've only gotten half a dozen of those calls this year.
But it's half a dozen more than I should have gotten. I don't live in New York State
, and the robocalls are coming in on my new landline, with a Washington area code, meaning that one or more political organizations somehow tracked us down here but didn't notice the area code, or even that we probably don't live in the same city council district anymore. (I can sort of see the ones for mayor—about half the population of the state lives in NYC—but city council? Yes, I like my old city council member, but it would be a felony for me to vote for him.)
As far as I know, the Board of Elections gets address changes when voters move within the state and tell them about it. They obviously aren't getting them from other state governments. If I'm lucky, they talk to Taxation and Finance, and will notice some time after we file state taxes from the new address.
