A reader writes with regard to all the data on Voice of the Faithful’s membership:
The Globe article says their survey had responses from 1,300 “members” nationwide.
In their most recent election (Nov-December 2004), 1596 “members” cast ballots (and I was one of them!) [Dom says: In other words, they’re not all “members.”] http://www.votf.org/election/2004/results.html
In their previous election (late 2003, results announced January 2004), 1,048 “members” cast ballots
What’s this say?!?
I guess if it were me, I wouldn’t even give them credit for 28,000 members. It’s more like a thousand and change who actually give a hoot enough to vote in an election. Compare this vs the Knights of Columbus with nearly 11000 councils and 1.6 million members.
