That's sad, especially considering the more than ample number of sources of information available today. I live thousands of miles away from my home state, but have still managed to keep up on the candidates and their positions.
At least the signs offer male dogs (or cats) lots of new "targets" to leave their mark.
I've already voted, and that has considerably reduced the pressure posed by ads, emails, online discussions, etc..
