What did I REALLY sign up for...
When I first moved out of NY a few years back,
I went food shopping at a Stop n Shop.
When I came out of the store, an enthusiastic girl with a clipboard came power walking my way and asked me if I was registered to vote.
She looked something like this:
Or maybe she looked more like this:
Or maybe she didn't look like either of those pictures at all...
In either case,
I talked to her and told her I was registered in NY but not MA.
She encouraged me to re-register to vote.
I totally did because I figured I may as well save time and just do it now.
So I put down my info on her clip board and we chatted for a bit then I walked away
never thought anything about it.
Months later when I went down to the town hall to double check on being re-registered.
It turned out I wasn't.
I told them about the girl at the Stop n Shop with the clipboard
asked them if that was normal.
No, people usually don't register to vote at the Stop n Shop...
So the question is, what did that girl use my info for?!
What did I really sign up for?
I guess I'll never know.
