“Dear PoPville,

Can we get a PSA regarding voting in DC? I’m an election worker and it’s been very quiet this week–probably because of the absentee ballots, but we’ve also encountered a number of people who don’t know some things about how easy it is to vote here. Notably: Read More


Thanks to Michelle for sharing. I can confirm that I’ve been getting similar hauls on the daily.

“Dear PoPville,

I have been curious as to who has been selling our cellphone number data to DC political candidates. is it DC government?

It looks horrible and is definitely not what we need as we go into the holiday season.
