Elections, what else?

Hereof fail not and make return of this warrant with your doings thereon at the time and place of said voting.
Given under our hands this 4th day of October 2004.
Attested to by the Constable of Lexington


This is exactly what is written at the bottom of my election info ballot, verbatim. Legacy of the heroic revolutionary past? The language smells a bit of the cannon fire circa 1780s.

Leaving the minor Bush-Kerry election question aside, there were 2 questions on my town's ballot, plus an election of 5 officials (3 of the races were uncontested). Collapse )
Come to think of it, there was no printed material from either Bush or Kerry, although I did catch a glimpse of their TV commercials when watching the last Red Socks games. Why not? Why don't they just send you a printed copy of their platform, clearly explaining their positions?
