The Slice

State of redundancy

Here's what I want to know.

Why do people gathering signatures in front of grocery stores say “Are you a registered voter in Washington state?”

Do these folks with the clipboards fear that a lot of people heading into Rosauers or Super 1 might actually be registered voters in the District of Columbia?

Do they think that if they leave off the “state,” stealth signers from Washington, D.C. will march up and ask for the pen?
