This is a slightly unusual post in that it’s a question to you, the reader.
So: can somebody who actually fully understands the DPS magnet lottery system answer a few questions for me? The deadline for entry is this Friday, which reminded me that I should write a bit about the whole weird thing, but in reviewing what I actually know I realized there were some gaps in my understanding. I found that the DPS web site was… somewhat lacking.
Hit me up in the comments, or @durhamdotio on Twitter, if you can lend a hand.
Also! I haven’t talked much about state politics much lately, because Durham’s been interesting enough, but if you’re curious it appears that things are getting kind of weird in Raleigh. Like… seriously.
