The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Preliminary Election Update

For John, BLUFBe sure to vote.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

From a Press Release from the Lowell Election Commission (Joseph Mullen, Chairman, Pat McCartin, Tom O'Brien and Thel Sar) we know that there will be a Preliminary Election, to winnow down the number of Candidates for City Council.  Preliminary Election as opposed to a Primary Election.

The Election will be Tuesday, 29 September 2015.

That means the deadline to register to vote is Wednesday, 9 September 2015.

That means the deadline for an absentee ballot will be Noon Monday, 28 September 2015.

Regards  —  Cliff

  Yes, it would be nice if we had same-day registration.  But, like everything else it will cost us money to do that.  So, what is the trade-off?  How many people would take advantage of this opportunity?  Why didn't they behoove themselves to register by 9 September?  And, of course, there is always the integrity-of-the-election question.  What is the chance someone could exploit this to stuff the ballot box?
