What's a Permanent Absentee Voter?

I got a mailer recently urging me to register to become a permanent absentee voter, as a way to reduce carbon emissions. The piece had pictures of nature and the earth and a big image of Fran Pavley. Turns out the LA Times wrote a story about the mailer "questioning whether it is improperly trying to influence a state Senate election in the West L.A. area by prominently featuring one of the candidates, former Assemblywoman Fran Pavley."

I call this killing two birds with one stone, saving paper by sending multiple messages in one piece and giving residents the permanent absentee application. I wonder if creationists will send PAV apps to people with photoshopped images of Jesus walking with dinosaurs and Rudy Giuliani.

If Fran didn't send you one, Los Angeles residents can still register for permanent absentee voting by clicking here.
