    Just curious what the BB thinks about this...

    I go to my mailbox today and find a jury summons for the man who used to live in my house. I've lived here for 5 years. He passed away in a nursing home about 4 years before I bought the house.

    I'm writing "Return to Sender - Recipient is Deceased" on the envelope and putting it back in the mailbox Monday morning. Do you guys think this is the right course of action, or should I actually call the County Clerk?

    I probably would also call the courthouse - shouldn't hurt anything.

    Next election, go and vote in his stead.

    (Return to sender should suffice.)

    You sure the DNC didn't send it?

    No. If you just write "deceased" they'll get the message.

    Thanks, everyone. I called the Court Clerk office and informed them. They said the call was sufficient, so I threw the summons away, per instruction. They were surprised that he was still on the roll.
