— Letters on voters error-filled, infuriating

I commend Jane Oleksak for her Nov. 7 letter about the organization Letters for Limited Government, in Fairfax, Va. Ms. Oleksak stated that the letters made her feel “a little creepy.”

I am usually a calm person, but these letters not only made me feel creepy, I was furious.

My neighbors here at Laurel View Village in Davidsville received these same letters stating that I had not voted in 2004 and 2008, and that my vote was pending in 2012.

I not only voted in both those years, but I was working the polls in Ferndale Borough (which I did for 15 years) and was right there to vote.

I have voted every year since I became eligible and I really resent this personal information being sent out to other people, much less that the information is false.

This should not be allowed.
