Yesterday I managed to get a last-minute invitation to get blogger-access to John Edwards after his Opportunity Rocks kick-off speech here in Chapel Hill. I decided not to go since the only questions I have for him are personal, like when are you moving to (near) Carrboro, how do you like it here, isn’t it just for the schools, do you shop at Weaver Street, etc.
Well I turns out maybe I shoud have gone because now I have a serious question: Why aren’t John and Elizabeth Edwards registered to vote here? Is Orange County just another one of your stepping stones on the way to something greater, or do you actually plan to be a part of our community?
I had assumed they were staying in Raleigh until their new west-of-Carrboro pad was built. But Bora Zivkovic (a wonderful NC blogger) took advantage of yesterday’s blogger availability and reported that the Edwards family is renting an apartment in Chapel Hill! So I did a little research (and found their legal names, which turn out to be Mary Elizabeth Anania and Johnny Reid), and I couldn’t find them as registered voters here. In fact, John and Elizabeth are still registered at their Raleigh address.
What gives, y’all? Where are your kids in school?
