Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,
Like everyone I have talked to we had no idea what that card that was mailed to us was about. It looked like a form to get a mail in ballot form a fast look. I happened to see a post by Christine Doherty and from that it was obvious it was something we are supposed to do in order to vote.
I asked around from people I know and they were of the same conclusion except for one. Some had thrown them away as they didn’t want a mail in ballot not know that was not the case. So already if enough people did this and go to vote it is going to be a problem with the workers having to take care of this during the election. But can the returned ones total be compared to the number of voters they were sent to so we can figure out how many actually signed these? Is this fair to implement a new way of doing things without the knowledge of the voters? Or if we don’t fill this out are we going to lose our right to vote? Would it not have been better to gear up a campaign to inform people? This is too sudden a drastic to just implement without people knowing. And also I want to point out I have yet to talk to anyone who even knew this going to happen. Something is terrible wrong here. Or maybe this was meant to be some kind of election fraud? Something Is not right and certainly looks very wrong. Anyone running for election this year should be checking this out.
