Thom,

Washington state does have mail in ballots. I just moved here a year ago and I have been mailed ballots and you have the choice of either mailing it back or delivering it in person to your county seat. For me that would be Colfax WA which is 15 miles away so I chose to mail it in. Since a stamp is chaeper than gas.

Thom overlooked one thing on Social Security statements when he suggested that they shouldn't be sent out. That might be applicable to showing estimated benefits; but people still need to verify the earnings posted. I don't know if it has changed but it used to be that you had 3 years to correct any errors, after 3 years errors are not corrected, even if Social Security made a mistake. That means if some of your wages are omitted or less than they should be, if you don't correct within 3 years, too bad.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
